Elissa Slotkin said : “When it comes to our water, we need to think about environmental security the way we think about homeland security — because it’s about our safety and our way of life in Michigan,” “It’s certainly welcome news that the Air Force is dedicating significant funds to help clean up the area around Wurtsmith Air Force base. There is a lot more the Department of Defense needs to do to stem the flow of PFAS, and clean up contaminated communities in our state like Oscoda, but this represents an important step that will have a direct impact on the health and safety of Michigan families” External link

Elissa Slotkin said : "Let me be clear: The government of Iran is a leading state sponsor of terrorism and engages in a range of destabilizing activities across the Middle East," "I have experienced these personally as a former CIA analyst. I served three tours in Iraq, and my specialty was to follow Iranian backed Shia militias operating in Iraq. I have followed Iran's destabilizing activity in Iraq up close, for my entire professional career. I've watched friends and colleagues hurt or killed by Iranian rockets mortars and explosive devices. Qassem Soleimani was the lead architect of much Iran's destabilizing activities in the Middle East and throughout the world. To that end, with Iran, or with any other adversary, the United States, always has the inherent right and obligation to self defense against imminent armed attacks. Always. And the United States, always maintains the right and the responsibility to ensure the safety of our diplomatic personnel and our armed forces serving abroad" External link

I watched friends and colleagues get hurt or killed by Iranian rockets, mortars and explosive devices that were provided to Iraqi proxies and used against U.S. forces under Soleimani’s guidance. We watched as his power increased and he brought strength and capability to groups in Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, and Yemen, and to smaller cells around the Middle East and the world, with devastating consequences. We watched what can only be described as a cool war, taking place quietly under the surface of the public eye. "What always kept both Democratic and Republican presidents from targeting Soleimani himself was the simple question: Was the strike worth the likely retaliation, and the potential to pull us into protracted conflict?

Elissa Slotkin said : “As a former Shia militia analyst who served multiple tours in Iraq and worked at the White House under both Presidents Bush and Obama, and later at the Pentagon, I participated in countless conversations on how to respond to Qassem Soleimani’s violent campaigns across the region,” “If you worked on the Middle East over the past 20 years, you dealt with the growing organization and sophistication of Soleimani’s covert and overt military activities, which have contributed to significant destabilization across the region. I watched friends and colleagues get hurt or killed by Iranian rockets, mortars and explosive devices that were provided to Iraqi proxies and used against U.S. forces under Soleimani’s guidance. We watched as his power increased and he brought strength and capability to groups in Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, and Yemen, and to smaller cells around the Middle East and the world, with devastating consequences. We watched what can only be described as a cool war, taking place quietly under the surface of the public eye” External link

Elissa Slotkin added : “What always kept both Democratic and Republican presidents from targeting Soleimani himself was the simple question: Was the strike worth the likely retaliation, and the potential to pull us into protracted conflict? The two administrations I worked for both determined that the ultimate ends didn’t justify the means. The Trump Administration has made a different calculation,” “The Iranian government has vowed to retaliate and avenge Soleimani’s death, and could do so in any number of ways: against our diplomats and service members or high-ranking military officers, against our allies and partners in the region, or through targeted attacks in the Western world. It is critical that the Administration has thought out the moves and counter-moves this attack will precipitate, and is prepared to protect our diplomats, service members, and citizens serving overseas” External link

Elissa Slotkin added : “This Administration, like all others, has the right to act in self-defense,” “But the Administration must come to Congress immediately and consult. If military engagement is going to be protracted -- which any informed assessment would consider -- the Administration must request an Authorization for the Use of Military Force. If the Administration needs additional resources, it will need to come back to Congress to request support. Congress also has a deep interest in the future of our relationship with Iraq, given our investment of blood and treasure there to rid the region of ISIS. Congress needs to understand the Administration’s plan as soon as possible” External link

I have followed Iran's destabilizing activity in Iraq up close, for my entire professional career. I've watched friends and colleagues hurt or killed by Iranian rockets mortars and explosive devices. Qassem Soleimani was the lead architect of much Iran's destabilizing activities in the Middle East and throughout the world. To that end, with Iran, or with any other adversary, the United States, always has the inherent right and obligation to self defense against imminent armed attacks. Always.
