Along with all the men and women of the U.S. Department of Defense, I offer my condolences to the families and friends of those lost in today`s terrorist attack in Paris. We condemn this barbaric and cowardly act. The United States and France have stood together, time and again, for the universal values we share and in opposition to the terror we deplore.
