Press Release

Congressman Bradley Byrne (R-AL), a member of the House Armed Services Committee, issued the following statement in response to U.S. airstrikes in Syria.

Byrne said: "President Trump was right to respond to Assad's barbaric and inhumane actions against men, women, and children in Syria. It appears the strikes were targeted and successful, and I want to share my gratitude and appreciation with the service members  who planned and executed the strikes.

"Ultimately, we still must answer a larger question about the future of Syria and the role of the United States going forward. One thing is clear: Congress must be involved in those discussions and decisions about what happens next."
