President Trump right to act to make world safer from Iranian terror

Jan. 3, 2020, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement in response to the U.S. elimination of Iranian general Qassem Soleimani in Iraq:

“Iranian general Qassem Soleimani was on Iraq soil when he was targeted by U.S. forces, well within the President’s congressionally approved power to conduct the war in Iraq and his Article II constitutional authority to protect U.S. forces. Additionally, Solemni had been declared the leader of a terrorist organization carrying out attacks against U.S. interests in Iraq and around the world. The President acted well within the scope of law to authorize this action, and should be receiving universal praise rather than approbation by those too fearful to lead.”
