In a Sunday interview with Fox News Channel’s “Life, Liberty & Levin,” Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) commented on President Donald Trump ordering an airstrike to kill Iranian military leader Gen. Qasem Soleimani.
Cotton, a military veteran, told host Mark Levin that after seeing intelligence, there is “no doubt” Soleimani was “plotting something large and something very dangerous.”
“Qasem Soleimani was a sadistic terrorist mastermind, and there is no country in the Middle East whose citizens have not suffered from his depredations,” Cotton outlined. “And there is no doubt – I’ve seen the intelligence – that he was plotting something large and something very dangerous — whether it happened in a matter of weeks or a matter of days.”
The senator from Arkansas went on to commend Trump’s decision to kill Soleimani, adding it should have been done “a long time ago.”
