Rep. Ami Bera Statement on Targeted Missile Strikes in Syria
Washington, D.C. -- Today, Rep. Ami Bera (D-CA) released the below statement following targeted missile strikes in Syria:
"The actions of the Syrian government are horrific acts and cannot be tolerated by the United States and our allies. The administration’s use of targeted missile strikes against a military target was a measured response to Assad’s use of chemical weapons against his own people. If the President wants to pursue any further use of military force in Syria, he must work with Congress to authorize a comprehensive plan to address this complicated conflict. I stand ready to return to Washington.”
Rep. Bera serves as the Vice Ranking Member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, and has served on the Committee since 2013.
