Rep. Bass Slams Lack of Strategy After Latest Bombing of Syria

April 13, 2018
Press Release
WASHINGTON – Today, Rep. Karen Bass (D-Calif.), top ranking Democrat on the House Subcommittee on Africa, Global Health, Global Human Rights, and International Organizations, released the following statement after the Trump administration announced yet another round of retaliatory strikes against Syria:

“Less than one month ago, Trump was deciding whether or not to take troops out of Syria. This past Monday, he said that he would have a plan of attack by Wednesday. Now, on Friday night, the Trump administration has bombed Syria once again.

“Sporadic bombings and fake timetables are not anywhere close to the well-thought-out strategy we need to successfully stop the inhumane and torturous chemical attacks against the people of Syria.”
