Press Release

WASHINGTON – Thursday evening the United States carried out a missile strike in response to the Syrian government’s chemical weapons attack this week.

Congressman John K. Delaney (MD-6) releases the following statement:  

“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.”
