Frustrated Senate Republicans say the Trump administration has largely kept them in the dark about a possible military confrontation with Iran.
What GOP lawmakers already know, however, has them on edge. Trump has deployed an aircraft carrier strike group, a Patriot missile defense battery and an Air Force bomber task force to the Middle East, while the State Department has ordered a partial evacuation of the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad.
The article goes on to state the following:
A few legislators have received briefings, but many can only guess at the extent of the threat and where a ramp up in combat forces may lead.
“I don’t think it’s fair for us to walk around wondering,” said Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), one of the Senate’s leading voices on global security issues.
Graham, the chairman of the State and Foreign Operations Appropriations Subcommittee, said he’s concerned about the evacuation of personnel from the Baghdad embassy given the regular attacks that facility endured during the height of the Iraq War.
“We’re clearly moving people,” he said. “This is a big deal.”
Sen. Graham after State Dept. orders personnel to leave Iraq posts: “I would urge the State Dept. and DoD to come down here and explain to us what’s going on” with alleged threats from Iran. “We need to understand what we’re doing.”https://t.co/sE3cURbALx pic.twitter.com/vhRDcdMLSz
