Congressman Joe Wilson Responds to Chemical Weapons Attack in Syria 

West Columbia, S.C. - Congressman Joe Wilson (R-SC) released the following statement regarding the chemical weapons attack in Syria this weekend.

"This targeting of innocent civilians is unacceptable, and the use of chemical weapons by Syria’s authoritarian dictator is a clear violation of international law and human rights. This worsening crisis puts even more innocent lives at risk as the fighting moves closer to heavily populated areas.  I have faith in the leadership of President Donald Trump and United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley, who I am grateful has joined other UN Security Council members in calling for an emergency meeting regarding this weekend’s barbaric attack outside of Damascus."
