WASHINGTON - Representative Seth Moulton issued the following statement after nearly a month of violence in Israel and the Palestinian territories:
I urge Israel and leaders in Ramallah to broker a ceasefire.
I am clear-eyed and united with Israel in the belief that Hamas is a terrorist organization. Israel has the right to defend itself, and Hamas's rocket attacks deserve a response. Israel must make every effort to avoid civilian deaths. That includes the continuation of the use of warnin…
WASHINGTON - Today The Washington Post, citing government sources on background, reported that President Biden will remove all U.S. service members from Afghanistan by September 11, 2021. Representative Seth Moulton (D-MA) made the following statement after the reports:
It is far more difficult to end a war than to start one. Almost 20 years on, it is clear we won't win the war in Afghanistan, but there are still devastating ways we could lose. I am encouraged that President Biden will exten…
WASHINGTON- Following the attack at the Capitol that led to the death of a U.S. Capitol Police officer, Rep. Seth Moulton released the following statement:
Capitol Police officers heroically defended our Capitol when it was under attack yet again, and I am deeply grateful for their service.
Let us never forget that they put their lives in front of ours every day to keep us safe and preserve the Temple of Democracy for all Americans.
Larry Smith still feels pain from the moment a military training exercise went wrong.
"I landed on the back of my head and my neck and I landed back here. I found out the human body actually bounces. I came down headfirst and I wasn't able to get my hands down because of the way I came off the obstacle," says Smith. "I couldn't feel my feet, couldn't feel anything."
Despite injuries like whiplash and a concussion, he still traveled overseas with his Air Force Unit, serving a year in the Persia…
BEVERLY - Congressman Seth Moulton's office and state and local officials on Monday expressed concern about the ongoing contamination at the former Varian site on Sohier Road and vowed to hold the company accountable for its cleanup.
A spokesman for Moulton said his office contacted the federal Environmental Protection Agency after The Salem News reported on Monday that levels of potentially toxic chemicals remain high despite a cleanup that has been going on for 28 years.

American flag in hand, Debbie Weinstein walked slowly across the lush grass Tuesday at Baker Street Memorial Park in West Roxbury.
The Lakeville woman bent toward the ground, placed the flag beside a flat grave marker, and rose to honor Daniel Weinstein, her father-in-law, an Army private in World War II who died in 2008 at the age of 87. Across this sprawling Jewish cemetery at the edge of Boston, Weinstein and the caretakers who work there appeared to be all alone.
"I just came to pay my res…
Everyone is asking me the same question: Should schools reopen? Actually, the data on this is pretty clear: Yes, kids across the board do better in school. But the question we really should be asking is this: What will we do when one kid in school -even just one - tests positive? Nobody seems to have an answer.
It's the age-old adage attributed to the great World War II general Omar Bradley: "Amateurs talk strategy. Professionals talk logistics." Getting kids in school may be the right strategy… Continue Reading
Over the last week, a debate about when to reopen our country has begun in earnest. If we reopen too soon, we'll lose the progress we've gained by social distancing, see a new spike in cases that overwhelms our hospital system, and inject even more uncertainty into an economy that's buckling under the weight of the worst pandemic in a century. If we wait too long, we'll cause more economic harm than necessary to combat the virus and more Americans will die from that fallout as well; death rates … Continue Reading
When our leaders have failed in crises, America has been at its best when we focus on what we can do rather than who we can blame.
As we entered World War II, the Greatest Generation didn't argue over whose fault it was that the military only had 3,000 planes -- they built 300,000 more. When the Bush administration bungled its response to Hurricane Katrina, millions stepped up to become unofficial first responders, food suppliers -- even caretakers for children separated from their families.
