(WASHINGTON, D.C.) – Today, U.S. Senator Patty Murray (D-WA) issued the following statement on the U.S. military strike in Syria.


“The atrocities committed by the Assad regime are truly despicable, and a strong response from the United States and the international community to protect civilians is absolutely warranted. This problem will not be solved with a one-time show of force, and President Trump must now articulate his strategy to Congress and the American people.”
