Representative Cory Mills (R-FL) traveled to Israel overnight, rescuing 32 Americans stranded in the nation.
Mills, a combat veteran, told the Floridian Press that "helping and showing solidarity with our Israeli brethren and helping Americans evacuate" is something he felt compelled to do after the nation was attacked by Hamas terrorists.
Mills said that despite rescuing 32 Americans, there are still "hundreds trapped" in the nation.
"I support Israel's right to defend itself, its citizens, and eliminate the terrorists threatening the stability of the region," Mills told The Post Millennial in an exclusive statement. "It's clear to me that this is the work of Iranian-backed Hamas, aimed at disrupting talks with Saudi Arabia and the expansion of the Trump-era Abraham Accords."
"Biden's decision to release $6 billion in frozen assets to Iran serves as a stark reminder of the consequences that took place following the Iran Nuclear Agreement under the Obama/Biden administration. This pattern is clear: each time funds are released to Iran, the largest state sponsor of terrorism, proxy militias in the region persistently launch attacks, aiming to destabilize and target Western allies and Americans."
The Biden administration has stated that it has no plans to refreeze the $6 billion, with National Security Council Coordinator for Strategic Communications John Kirby stating, "As I said, last time, you and I talked about this, that money can be refrozen... We won't hesitate to make that decision if we feel we need to. But I'm not going to get ahead of a policy decision that hasn't been made yet."
"Examining the precision and coordination of the recent attack, it's highly plausible that the recent $6 billion, in addition to the many more billions made available to Iran after Biden lifted sanctions, provided the necessary funding to execute this assault," Mills told The Post Millennial.
"This well-coordinated, multi-pronged Hamas attack was directed by Iran, reminiscent of Quds Force-led proxy militia attacks in Iraq against US installations and allies."
"I wouldn’t be surprised to see some of the $7 billion of military weapons and equipment, left behind in Afghanistan, by Biden being utilized."
An Israel Defense Force official warned in June that weapons left behind in Afghanistan could find their way into the hands of Iran, expressing concern that "they can research capabilities and then learn how to manufacture them."
"The other problem," he added, "is that we are very worried that some of these capabilities are going to fall to Hezbollah and Hamas' hands."
"The alignment of China, Russia, Iran, and North Korea in the geopolitical landscape, along with the strengthening of BRICS, should be a major concern for the US and its allies," Mills said.
"The destabilizing of regions connected to the US, proxy wars diverting attention from China's strategic goals, global devaluation of the dollar, and our diminishing production capabilities to respond to large-scale defense if needed once we’ve reduced and weakened U.S. munition storage, are all factors."
"Too often we view incidents in isolation and fail to recognize the larger strategy of malign actors coming together. Weakness indeed invites aggression, and Joe Biden currently projects vulnerability on the world stage."
On Wednesday, the State Department confirmed that the number of Americans killed in Israel has risen to 22, and that a number of Americans are believed to be among the hostages taken by Hamas into Gaza.
On Tuesday, Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin said that the US has "people on the ground" to assist Israeli authorities "with intelligence and planning" for potential hostage recovery operations, and said that the Pentagon has a "liaison cell" in Israel working with the country’s special operations forces, and that the US has the ability to "rapidly deploy other resources into the region."
US special forces have also been put on alert in Europe, prepared to assist in hostage recovery efforts if ordered.
