Apr 13, 2018 Issues: Defense and National Security

Washington, DC - In response to the military actions in Syria this evening, Representative Dave Reichert (R-WA) released the following statement:

"Absolutely no one should be treated the way the Syrian government has treated their people. Chemical weapons attacks against innocent men, women, and children cannot be tolerated. It is our responsibility as a world leader to take a stand with our allies against these heinous actions. Discussion of our long-term strategy in Syria will continue, but at this moment it is essential we take a stand. My prayers are with our military forces and those who have witnessed the atrocities of the Assad regime."
