Bennet: I support smart solutions to curb mass casualties abroad. Our goal should be to deploy diplomatic tools and invest in stability before a crisis breaks out. I've cosponsored the Genocide and Atrocities Prevention Act of 2016, which would increase our ability to detect atrocities and respond more quickly. It also designates prevention of mass atrocities and genocide as a core national security interest to the United States.
Q: What do you view as the biggest threat to national security?
Bennet: I believe there are several. ISIS is a threat to U.S. interests abroad and our security here at home. I have bills to close gaps in our visa waiver system and track people who overstay their visas so we know who's in our country. I passed legislation to address cybersecurity personnel shortages, so we can better protect ourselves from cyberattacks.
