Press Release

Washington, DC – In response to President Obama’s speech on Tuesday evening regarding diplomatic solutions to addressing Syria’s use of chemical weapons, Congressman Gene Green released the following statement:

“I’m glad President Obama announced that he would let diplomatic efforts proceed to safeguard Syria's chemical weapons. He clearly explained to Congress and the American people the basis for his decision to threaten the Assad regime. It was based on the documented proof of the Syrian government’s use of chemical weapons against its citizens. Without the President's efforts, this diplomatic option would not be available.”
