Guthrie Statement on Death of Soleimani

Washington, January 3, 2020

Congressman Brett Guthrie (KY-02) released the following statement on the death of Qassem Soleimani: 

“Qassem Soleimani has directed attacks at U.S. troops and has the blood of hundreds of American lives on his hands. Our brave men and women in uniform eliminated him from the battlefield. I think President Trump reacted restrained and appropriately, and I do hope Iran sees the power and will of our military and de-escalates their provocations. In the coming days I stand ready to work with my colleagues in Congress and the administration to respond to any further escalation in the Middle East.”
