Keating on Iran

Below is statement from Congressman Bill Keating on the recent airstrike in Iraq. Congressman Keating is Chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee’s Subcommittee on Europe, Eurasia, Energy and the Environment as well as a senior member of the Armed Services Committee:


“No American is going to mourn the loss of Qassim Suleimani, who was responsible for the killing of Americans as well as innocent civilians.  The Administration must brief Congress of the legal basis for this action, our coordination with Iraq and our other allies, and most importantly their plan to keep every American service member, diplomat, and civilian oversees - as well as our citizens at home - are safe from retaliation.”
