WASHINGTON – U.S. Congressman Steve Chabot (R-Ohio) released the following statement on the death of Qasem Soleimani:

“Qasem Soleimani was the chief architect of the shadow war that Iran has been waging for several years against America and our allies in the Middle East, including the recent hostilities against our embassy and forces in Iraq.  He’s responsible for the deaths of hundreds of Americans during the Iraq War and was actively plotting more violence against our nation. President Trump, as Commander in Chief, took bold action to protect American lives, our strategic interests, and our allies. It is my hope that the Iranian leadership will appreciate the seriousness of American resolve and not escalate their destabilizing activities further.”
