WASHINGTON – Congressman Vern Buchanan released the following statement after the U.S. launched an overnight missile strike against a Syrian air base.

“The U.S. strike against a Syrian air base was a measured and appropriate response to Bashar al-Assad’s use of banned chemical weapons,” Buchanan said. “I hope the president will now bring together the international community in a unified response against the Syrian government's unacceptable actions.”
