     made available to address any major disaster declared on or 
     after August 27, 2011, the Administrator of the Federal 
     Emergency Management Agency (in this section referred to as

     the relocation of State facilities under section 406 of the 
     Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance 
     Act (42 U.S.C. 5172).
       (2) Authority.--
       (A) Waiver authorized.--Subject to subparagraph (B), under 
     the pilot program established under paragraph (1), the 
     Administrator may waive, or specify alternative requirements 
     for, any regulation that the Administrator administers to 
     provide assistance, consistent with the National 
     Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq.),

     Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance 
     Act.
       (B) Conditions.--The Administrator may take actions 
     authorized under subparagraph (A) only if the Administrator 
     determines that the relocation--
       (i) is practicable;
       (ii) will be cost effective, or more appropriate than 
     repairing, restoring, reconstructing, or replacing the 
     facility in its pre-disaster location; and
       (iii) will effectively mitigate the flood risk to the 
     facility.
       (C) Facilities covered.--This paragraph shall apply with 
     respect to State facilities including administrative office 
     buildings, medical facilities, laboratories, and related 
     operating infrastructure (including heat, sewage, mechanical, 
     electrical, and plumbing).
       (b) Eligibility of Certain Costs.--Hereafter, for 
     determinations regarding compliance with codes and standards 
     under the Federal Emergency Management Agency Public 
     Assistance program authorized under section 406 of the Robert 
     T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act (42 
     U.S.C. 5172), the Administrator shall, for major disasters 
     declared on or after August 27, 2011, consider eligible the 
     costs required to comply with a State's Stream Alteration 
     General Permit process, including any design standards

       Sec. 9015. (a) Findings.--Congress makes the following 
     findings:
       (1) It remains the goal of the United States to enhance the 
     sovereignty of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan in all 
     areas of its government.
       (2) The United States' continuing mission in Afghanistan 
     requires effective cooperation with the Government of 
     Afghanistan to ensure that law of war detainees captured on 
     the battlefield do not present an undue danger to members of 
     the armed forces or civilians of either nation.
       (3) A cooperative, humanitarian, and flexible system of 
     detainment in Afghanistan is a critical element of ensuring 
     the safety of our troops as long as the United States' 
     mission continues in Afghanistan.
       (b) Limitation.--No funds appropriated or otherwise made 
     available by title IX of this division under the heading 
     ``Afghanistan Infrastructure Fund'' may be obligated or 
     expended until the Secretary of Defense submits to the 
     appropriate committees of Congress a report setting forth the 
     certifications as follows:
       (1) That transfers to the Government of Afghanistan of 
     Afghan nationals detained by United States Armed Forces in 
     Afghanistan territory do not present a significant threat to 
     United States or coalition forces based upon the likelihood 
     that the detainee to be transferred will engage in continuing 
     hostile acts against the United States or its coalition 
     allies.
       (2) That the Government of Afghanistan is in compliance 
     with international humanitarian law, including Additional 
     Protocol II of 1977 to the Geneva Convention of 1949, with 
     respect to preventing detainee abuse.
       (3) That the Government of Afghanistan has implemented an 
     administrative detention regime under its domestic law as an 
     alternative to criminal prosecution, which regime is--
       (A) consistent with international humanitarian law, 
     including the Additional Protocol II of 1977 to the Geneva 
     Convention of 1949, Afghanistan domestic law, and all of the 
     international obligations of Afghanistan;
       (B) in compliance with the international obligations of 
     Afghanistan with respect to humane treatment and applicable 
     due process; and
       (C) based on sustainable arrangements, including housing.
       (4) That there exists a continuing capability of both the 
     United States and Afghanistan to gather intelligence from 
     detainees transferred to the Government of Afghanistan for 
     the mutual benefit of both nations.
       (5) That, as part of the intelligence gathering described 
     in paragraph (4), the United States is granted regular, 
     direct access to detainees held by the Government of 
     Afghanistan for the purpose of interrogation or any other 
     lawful purpose.
       (6) That the Government of Afghanistan is consulting, and 
     will continue to consult, the United States before the 
     release, including release prior to indictment, of any 
     detainee transferred to the Government of Afghanistan, and, 
     if the United States provides its assessment that continued 
     detention is necessary to prevent such a detainee from 
     engaging in or facilitating terrorist activity, the 
     Government of Afghanistan will consider favorably such 
     assessment.
       (7) That additional processes will be in place in any case 
     where the United States considers a detainee held by 
     Afghanistan an enduring security threat (or its equivalent) 
     to ensure that the detainee will not present a security 
     threat once released.
       (c) Contingent Requirement for Explanatory Report.--If the 
     report described by subsection (b) has not been submitted to 
     Congress by 45 days after the date of the enactment of this 
     Act, the Secretary of Defense shall submit to the appropriate 
     committees of Congress on such date a report setting forth an 
     explanation why the report described by subsection (b) has 
     not been so submitted.
       (d) Comptroller General Report.--Not later than 45 days 
     after the date of the enactment of this Act, the Comptroller 
     General of the United States shall submit to the appropriate 
     committees of Congress a report setting forth an assessment 
     by the Comptroller General of the the ability of the 
     Government of Afghanistan to sustain costs associated with 
     securing detainees in Afghanistan.
       (e) Appropriate Committees of Congress Defined.--In this 
     section, the term ``appropriate committees of Congress''

       At the appropriate place, insert the following:
       Sec. __. (a) Findings.--The Senate makes the following 
     findings:
       (1) United States officials reportedly took Suleiman Abu 
     Ghayth into custody on February 28, 2013.
       (2) Abu Ghayth is the son-in-law of Osama Bin Laden and a 
     member of al Qaeda.
       (3) From 2001 to 2002, Abu Ghayth allegedly served al 
     Qaeda, urged others to swear allegiance to Bin Laden, spoke 
     on behalf of and in support of al Qaeda's mission, warned 
     that attacks similar to those of September 11, 2001, would 
     continue, and actively supported al Qaeda's efforts to kill 
     Americans.
       (4) On or about May 2001, Abu Ghayth allegedly urged 
     individuals at a guest house in Kandahar, Afghanistan, to 
     swear an oath of allegiance to Bin Laden.
       (5) Members and associates of al Qaeda have executed a 
     number of terrorist attacks intended to kill Americans, 
     including the attacks on the United States on September 11, 
     2001, in New York, Virginia, and Pennsylvania, which killed 
     approximately 2,976 people.
       (6) On the morning of September 12, 2001, Abu Ghayth 
     appearing with Bin Laden and Ayman al-Zawahiri, served as a 
     spokesman for al Qaeda and warned the United States and its 
     allies that ``[a] great army is gathering against you'' and 
     called upon ``the nation of Islam'' to do battle against 
     ``the Jews, the Christians and the Americans''.
       (7) After the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, Abu 
     Ghayth gave a speech in which he warned that ``the storms 
     shall not stop, especially the Airplanes Storm'', and advised 
     Muslims, children, and opponents of the United States ``not 
     to board any aircraft and not to live in high rises''.
       (8) In 2002, Abu Ghayth allegedly said ``al Qaeda has the 
     right to kill four million Americans, including one million 
     children, displace double that figure, and injure and cripple 
     hundreds and thousands''.
       (9) In 2002, Abu Ghayth reportedly arranged to be smuggled 
     to Iran, where he was held under a loose form of house arrest 
     for several years.
       (10) Abu Ghayth has been reportedly tied to the October 8, 
     2002, attack on United States Marines training on Faylaka 
     Island off the coast of Kuwait, which resulted in the death 
     of one American.
       (11) Kuwait reportedly stripped Abu Ghayth of his 
     citizenship because of his role in recruiting Kuwaitis for al 
     Qaeda.
       (12) Abu Ghayth is reportedly believed to have been in Iran 
     since his release in 2010.
       (13) On or about March 1, 2013, Abu Ghayth was brought to 
     the United States to stand trial on terrorism charges in the 
     United States District Court for the Southern District of New 
     York.
       (14) On March 8, 2013, Abu Ghayth pled not guilty to 
     terrorism charges.
       (15) On September 14, 2001, in the wake of the terrorist 
     attacks on the United States, Congress passed the 
     Authorization for Use of Military Force (Public Law 107-40), 
     which the President signed on September 18, 2001.
       (16) The Authorization for Use of Military Force authorizes 
     the President ``to use all necessary and appropriate force 
     against those nations, organizations, or persons he 
     determines planned, authorized, committed, or aided the 
     terrorist attacks that occurred on September 11, 2001, or 
     harbored such organizations or persons, in order to prevent 
     any future acts of international terrorism against the United 
     States by such nations, organizations or persons''.
       (17) Section 1021 of the National Defense Authorization Act 
     for Fiscal Year 2012 (Public Law 112-81) affirms the 
     authority of the Armed Forces of the United States to detain 
     covered persons pursuant to the Authorization for Use of 
     Military Force.
       (18) Section 1022 of the National Defense Authorization Act 
     for Fiscal Year 2012 establishes a requirement, subject to a 
     case-by-case national security waiver by the President, for 
     military custody of foreign members of al Qaeda and 
     associated forces who participated in the course of planning 
     or carrying out an attack or attempted attack against the 
     United States and its coalition partners.
       (19) Abu Ghayth is an enemy belligerent and meets the 
     definition of a covered person under section 1022 of the 
     National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012.
       (20) Military custody for enemy belligerents, consistent 
     with United States and international law, provides the best 
     means to collect the intelligence that can prevent future 
     terrorist attacks and save American lives.
       (21) Long-term law of war military detention affords the 
     opportunity for interrogators to return periodically over 
     subsequent months and years to gather additional information.
       (22) It is this access to detainees in long-term law of war 
     custody that allowed the intelligence community to gather 
     information that helped ultimately locate Bin Laden.
       (23) Members of al Qaeda, like Abu Ghayth, are not common 
     criminals. They are enemy belligerents at war with our 
     country. United States detention and interrogation policies 
     must distinguish between intelligence collection to prevent 
     terrorist attacks and standard criminal prosecutions.
       (24) When the United States places enemy belligerents in 
     courts under Article III of the Constitution for trial, 
     grants them the legal rights normally reserved for common 
     criminals, and focuses on prosecution rather than 
     intelligence collection, the United States can miss valuable 
     information that will help keep our country safe.
       (25) Al Qaeda affiliates throughout the world, such as al 
     Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula and al Qaeda in the Islamic 
     Mahgreb, present a complex and growing threat to the United 
     States and its interests.
       (26) United States forces continue to capture members of al 
     Qaeda and associated forces.
       (27) The United States has a top-rate facility at Naval 
     Station Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, that allows for the secure and 
     humane detention and interrogation of foreign enemy 
     belligerents.
       (28) On January 22, 2009, President Obama issued an 
     executive order to close the detention facility at Naval 
     Station Guantanamo Bay, yet Congress has prohibited the use 
     of funds to transfer detainees at Naval Station Guantanamo 
     Bay to the United States or to construct or modify facilities 
     in the United States to house detainees at Naval Station 
     Guantanamo Bay. Congress has also placed restrictions on the 
     ability to transfer detainees at Naval Station Guantanamo Bay 
     to foreign countries.
       (29) On February 15, 2011, the Under Secretary of Defense 
     for Intelligence, Michael Vickers, said ``[t]he 
     administration is in the final stages of. . .establishing its 
     detention policy''.
       (30) On April 7, 2011, General Carter Ham, the Commander of 
     the United States Africa Command responded to a question 
     about what he would do if we captured a member of al Qaeda in 
     Africa, by saying he would need ``some lawyerly help on 
     answering that one''.
       (31) On June 28, 2011, the Commander of the United States 
     Special Operations Command, Admiral William McRaven, 
     testified that his options to detain foreign enemy 
     belligerents were to detain them temporarily on a ship, 
     transfer them to a third country, or ``if we can't do either 
     one of those, then we'll release that individual and that 
     becomes the--the unenviable option, but it is an option''.
       (32) On March 6, 2012, approximately a year later, when 
     asked during a hearing of the Committee on Armed Services of 
     the Senate whether the administration has developed a 
     detention policy for enemy belligerents, Admiral McRaven 
     testified ``nothing has changed since then''.
       (33) Approximately 28 percent of detainees who have been 
     released from Naval Station Guantanamo Bay have reengaged or 
     are suspected of having reengaged in terrorist activity.

[[Page S1822]]

       (34) Former detainees at Naval Station Guantanamo Bay have 
     conducted suicide bombings, recruited radicals, and trained 
     recruits to kill Americans and our allies.
       (35) Said al Shihri and Abdul Zakir represent two examples 
     of former detainees at Naval Station Guantanamo Bay who 
     returned to the fight and assumed leadership positions in 
     terrorist organizations dedicated to killing Americans and 
     our allies.
       (36) On November 29, 2012, in a 54 to 41 vote, the Senate 
     agreed to Senate Amendment 3245 to S. 3254, the National 
     Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2013, which would 
     have permanently prohibited use of funds for the transfer or 
     release of detainees from Naval Station Guantanamo Bay into 
     the United States.
       (37) As enacted, the National Defense Authorization Act for 
     Fiscal Year 2013 (Public Law 112-239) prohibits for one year 
     the use of Department of Defense funds to transfer or release 
     detainees at Naval Station Guantanamo Bay to or within the 
     United States, its territories, or possessions.
       (b) Sense of Senate.--It is the sense of the Senate to--
       (1) reaffirm that the United States remains at war with al 
     Qaeda and its associated forces;
       (2) assert that when a member of al Qaeda or an associated 
     force is taken into custody, the focus should be on 
     intelligence collection and the prevention of future attacks 
     and not on prosecution;
       (3) believe by bringing members of al Qaeda and its 
     associated forces into civilian custody, rather than military 
     detention, the United States inappropriately gives these 
     terrorists the rights afforded by the civilian system of 
     justice in the United States, including speedy presentment 
     and Miranda rights;
       (4) believe no terrorists should ever hear ``you have the 
     right to remain silent'';
       (5) believe that Abu Ghayth and other members of al Qaeda 
     or associated forces like him should be placed in military 
     custody and brought to Naval Station Guantanamo Bay for long-
     term, interrogation, and, as appropriate, trial by military 
     commission, consistent with chapter 47A of title 10, United 
     States Code (as amended by the Military Commissions Act of 
     2009 (title XVIII of Public Law 111-84)); and
       (6) call on the Obama Administration to work with Congress 
     to establish a coherent detention policy for the long-term 
     detention and interrogation of enemy belligerents, and the 
     potential trial by military commission of foreign enemy 
     belligerents, that will help collect intelligence, protect 
     our country, and prevent future attacks.
