Press Release

Today, Congressman Ken Calvert, the lead Republican on the Defense Appropriations Subcommittee, issued the following statement following the U.S. military action resulting in the death of Qasem Soleimani: 

“The primary architect of death and terror in the Middle East is dead. Qasem Soleimani led Iran’s Middle East aggression, which is responsible for the deaths of hundreds of American soldiers. Soleimani’s actions represented a direct and violent attack on U.S. interests in the region. I applaud President Trump for making the decision to eliminate this evil man before he carried out more killing, terror, and destabilizing hostility.”
