A Republican lawmaker and US Army veteran spent roughly two minutes of his allotted speaking time in silence during a House hearing with former US officials on Tuesday.
Rep. Brian Mast of Florida, a retired US Army bomb technician and Purple Heart recipient, was arguing in favor of the US killing of Iranian commander Qassem Soleimani.
“If you walk about this hallway … you’re going to come to several beautiful walls that have the names of our fallen service members from the war on terror,” Mast said. “And I would ask, can any of you provide me with one name on that wall that doesn’t justify killing Soleimani?”
“I got two minutes and 30 seconds. I’ll be more than happy to sit here and wait,” Mast added, before the silence. “Somebody provide me with a name on that wall that does not justify his killing.”
