Congresswoman Barbara Lee Releases Statement on Recent Air Strikes in Syria

Washington, D.C. –  Congresswoman Barbara Lee (CA-13) today released the following statement on the recent air strikes in Syria carried out by the Biden Administration:

“The strike in Syria underscores that tensions between the United States and Iran remain dangerously high, and that there is an urgent need to get back to the table to revive the JCPOA.  It also highlights the urgent need to repeal the blank checks for endless wars — the 2001 and 2002 AUMFs — which are now almost 20 years old. Let’s be clear: this is not about this president or any other president, it is about the need to restore the balance of power with Congress in the use of military force.”
