Press Release

WASHINGTON - Rep. Jason Crow (D-CO) released the following statement on the U.S. military airstrikes on facilities used by Iranian-backed military groups along the Iraq-Syria border:

“As an Army Ranger I learned that the duty to protect our troops is our most solemn one and I thank President Biden for acting decisively. I look forward to hearing from the Administration about the intelligence that led to these airstrikes and having the much needed debate in Congress about how our military presence fits into our broader strategy to counter Iranian regional aggression. The Founding Fathers gave Congress the most solemn responsibility of sending our sons and daughters to war and it remains my priority that Congress reasserts our constitutional role in matters of war and diplomacy.”
