Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC - Rep. Mac Thornberry (R-TX), Ranking Member of the House Armed Services Committee, made the following statement on US policy in Syria:

"It would be a grave mistake for Turkey to send its military forces into Syria provoking hostilities with the Syrian Democratic Forces. It would also be a grave mistake for the U.S. to unilaterally withdraw from Syria or to acquiesce in any way to a Turkish invasion. The consequences of these decisions will be severe and lasting for the Middle East and for the rest of the world."
