STATEMENT FROM U.S. REP. JOHN KATKO ON U.S. STRIKES IN SYRIA
SYRACUSE, NEW YORK – U.S. Rep. John Katko (NY-24) today released the following statement regarding U.S. military strikes in Syria:
“The horrific and barbaric chemical attacks by the Assad regime against innocent civilians, including children, warranted strong and measured action. Targeted U.S. strikes on the air base from which these chemical attacks emanated were a proportional response to this horrible atrocity. Given the complexity of the conflict in Syria, I urge the Administration to articulate its strategy moving forward. As always, our Armed Forces acted bravely, professionally, and successfully, and I remain committed to ensuring they have the resources to be safe and successful.”
Congressman John Katko represents the 24th Congressional District of New York, which includes all of Onondaga, Cayuga, and Wayne Counties and the western portion of Oswego County. For more information visit http://katko.house.gov or www.facebook.com/RepJohnKatko.
