Delaney Releases Statement on Syria Air Strikes

Congressman John Delaney (MD-6) reacted to the United States launch of a military strike on Syria in response to the country’s chemical weapon attack that killed dozens of civilians earlier this week.

“United States airstrikes appear to target airfields where the recent chemical weapons attack originated. This response to the immoral attack by Assad on his own people sends a clear message that the United States is willing to hold Assad accountable for his atrocities. The White House now needs to work with Congress on a strategy for Syria that ends the conflict and facilitates Assad’s removal, addresses the refugee and humanitarian crisis created by Assad and defeats ISIS. Thus far the Administration has provided no details on any of these items. We thank the extraordinary men and women of our military for their service in this operation.”
