PHILADELPHIA  – Today, House Armed Services Committee Member Bob Brady (D-PA) released the following statement about the U.S. strikes against the Syrian government:

“After seeing the photos of children killed in the chemical attack, it is hard to disagree with the President’s decision to retaliate and strike the air base in Syria. The base, where U.S. officials say the Syrian military planes that dropped the chemicals took off from. But, the President should have conferred with Congress. He should have reached out and asked for support from our allies. Going it alone does not work in today’s world. And, he must come to Congress for all and any approval in the future.”
