On Friday’s broadcast of Fox News Radio’s “Brian Kilmeade Show,” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) expressed support for the recent airstrikes in Syria.
Graham said, “I talked to Secretary of State Blinken this morning about that and other things. And I told them they had my full support. What’s happening here is that they’re staging these operations in Iraq out of Syria. Syria’s become somewhat of a safe haven for Hezbollah and Shiite militia groups in Iraq. So, they stage in Syria. Hitting them in Syria I thought was a smart move. You don’t have the problems you do if you hit in Iraq with the political system. … So, I support this. This is the place where they were supplying weapons and material to folks inside of Iraq hitting our troops and our diplomats. So, I’m all for it. The more the better.”
