Rep. Barry Loudermilk (R-GA) issued the following statement after White House administration officials briefed members of Congress on the air strike that killed Iran General Qasem Soleimani and the missile attack by Iran which targeted U.S. military bases in Iraq:

“After meeting with the Secretary of State, Secretary of Defense, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Director of CIA, Director of National Intelligence, and DOJ this afternoon, I am confident that the attack on the Iranian terrorist leader General Soleimani was constitutional, justified, and saved countless American lives. In stark contrast to what some of the radical left are claiming, there was specific and actionable intelligence of imminent attacks against the United States by forces led by Soleimani. Furthermore, I am more confident that the President’s 'maximum pressure campaign' is effective and is working toward achieving our long-term goals in the Middle East.”
