Washington, D.C. – U.S. Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick, D-Ariz., released the following statement about potential U.S. military action against Syria:

“Reports that the Syrian government has attacked and killed its own citizens with chemical weapons are deeply disturbing. As President Obama and our military and intelligence leaders consider a response, it's critical that Congress is closely consulted and the American people are properly informed. A U.S. military response to Syria's brutality bears great risks and repercussions, and therefore should meet a high standard of transparency to earn the support of our nation."
