WATCH: Rep. McSally Sets Stage For Iran Nuclear Deal Debate With 9/11 Remembrance; "Sparked a Renewed Sense of Determination and Unity"

Arizona Rep. Martha McSally (R- CD2) set the stage for the the U.S. House of Representatives' debate on the nuclear arms deal with Iran this morning, noting that the attacks by "Islamic terrorists" on 9/11 (2001) "sparked a renewed sense of determination and unity that should not be forgotten."

McSally's one-minute speech on the House floor came immediately preceding the suddenly-tense House debate on the nuclear agreement.  She focused on 9/11, especially remembering two victims who were born in Tucson - Aaron Jeremy Jacobs and Karol Ann Keasler.

While not specifically mentioning the debate on the Iran deal, she did note that "we are in a generational fight against terrorists, like ISIS, who seek our complete destruction and that of our allies and our way of life.

(Correction, 2:25pm: correcting spelling of 9/11 victim Karol Ann Keasler.)
