Representative Knight made the following statement regarding the April 6th Syrian strike: 

"Time and again, Bashar al Assad has proven to be monstrously cruel to his own people. This recent sarin gas attack is further evidence that his disregard for international law and human decency has no place in the modern world. As long as Assad remains in power, the Syrian people will continue to suffer under his oppression, which is why he must be removed- with force if necessary. The recent strikes against the Assad regime were warranted and necessary, and I look forward to seeing the Administration present a comprehensive plan to Congress on U.S. strategy in Syria moving forward."
