WASHINGTON, D.C. - Congressman Clay Higgins (R-LA) issued the following statement after U.S. Central Command released details of the Iranian attack on a U.S. drone that was flying over international waters. 

“We are closely watching the Iranian threat. Classified briefings from the Department of Defense, the State Department, and our intelligence agencies will guide all actions. The fanatical, brutal regime in Iran has been a global threat for decades. The Iranian people themselves may ultimately take action to restore their nation, and they should be aware that America and Israel will stand as one against Iranian aggression. President Trump has made it very clear... all options are on the table.”
