Washington, D.C. – House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Ed Royce (R-CA) issued the following statement on tonight’s U.S. airstrikes in Syria:

“Assad was warned, repeatedly, by the U.S. and the U.N. that the intentional  targeting of innocent men, women and children is intolerable.  Now Assad has been caught red-handed carrying out another abhorrent chemical attack, and the administration has taken a measured response.  Moving ahead, the administration must work with Congress and lay out clear policy goals for Syria and the region.”
