Graham on Russian Aircraft Launching from Iran

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) made this statement today following the news that Russian bomber aircraft launched from an airbase in Iran.

“So much for the new relationship with Russia. Russia’s use of Iranian airbases to strike U.S backed Syrian opposition forces may be a new low in the Syrian conflict.

“Russia and Iran clearly have no respect for the Obama Administration nor Secretary Kerry. This is yet another bad day for the people of Syria and the region as a whole.”
