Washington, DC – Congressman Jim Moran, Northern Virginia Democrat, today commended President Obama for his response to continued atrocities in Syria and implored Congress to act swiftly to prevent more egregious events.
“President Obama was absolutely right in setting a red line against the use of weapons of mass destruction by Bashar al-Assad. The United States has the only true ability to prevent the use and proliferation of such weapons,” said Rep. Moran. “Abdicating this responsibility will only allow for their deployment to become the new norm.”
“Now it is up to one of the most divisive, least productive Congresses in history to authorize an intervention and protect the credibility and viability of a US response to Assad’s horrific crimes against humanity,” Moran concluded.
