Washington, DC – Congressman Adam Kinzinger (IL-16) released the following statement after Iran launched missiles on two airbases in Iraq that house U.S. troops:

“America is a beacon of light around the world, standing for freedom and justice. We stand for the oppressed, for those who don’t have a voice. And when we stand united, our message is that much stronger. Last night, Iran fired missiles at Al-Asad and Erbil Airbases in Iraq, where our U.S. troops are stationed. This was an escalation by the Iranians, and a misguided one at that. As a nation, we must stand together in support of our military men and women, and their loved ones. This is not a time for political bias and political posturing; this is a time of unity and showing our support to our heroes in uniform.”

The Congressman is continuing to monitor the situation, as we learn more about any damages or possible casualties as a result of these attacks.
