January 28, 2024

WASHINGTONU.S. Senator Roger Wicker, R-Miss., the highest-ranking Republican on the Senate Armed Services Committee, released the following statement:

“It is time to act with purpose and resolve in response to attacks that have tragically taken the lives of American service members and injured scores more,” Senator Wicker said. “We must respond to these repeated attacks by Iran and its proxies by striking directly against Iranian targets and its leadership. The Biden administration's responses thus far have only invited more attacks.  It is time to act swiftly and decisively for the whole world to see.”
