The Washington Times: Adam Kinzinger blames Iran for oil tanker attacks: 'They're lashing out, no doubt'
“In Iraq, a quarter of American troops were killed as a direct or indirect result from Iran. We can go over 30 years of history and point every time Iran has lashed out at the United States or any of our allies. I have no doubt this is Iran in the Strait of Hormuz. They’re the only ones with the capability to do it,” the Illinois Republican said on CNN’s “At This Hour” show.
“Even if it wasn’t directly IRGC, Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps soldiers, it would be a militia for instance that they’ve energized,” he said. “They’re lashing out, no doubt.”
The U.S. military’s Central Command released a video Thursday night that purports to show Iranians removing an unexploded limpet mine from one of the two ships attacked.
President Trump agreed with that analysis, telling Fox New’s “Fox & Friends” Friday that “it was [Iran] that did it.”
“We’re being very tough on sanctions. When I came into office, they were an absolute terror. They were all over the place, they were Yemen, they were in Syria. [Iran] was in charge of every place. They’ve changed a lot since I’ve been president. They were unstoppable and now they’re in deep, deep trouble,” he said.
