Rep. Courtney Statement on US Air Strike in Iraq

January 3, 2020
Press Release

NORWICH, CT – Congressman Joe Courtney (CT-02), a member of the House Armed Services Committee, issued the following statement on the air strike ordered last night against Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corp Commander General Qasem Soleimani:

“The unilateral decision by President Trump to strike down a bad actor such as Soleimani unfortunately does not close the book on the threat Iran poses to America. Not consulting with the American people, Congressional leadership and our allies before taking this escalatory action in a part of the world where we have been entangled for eighteen long years is the wrong way to isolate Iranian bad behavior and wind down our involvement in the Middle East.”
