Searching for Solutions in Syria: The Trump Administration's Strategy, Hearing Before the Committee on Foreign Affairs, House of Representatives, One Hundred Sixteenth Congress, First Session, May 22, 2019 [open pdf - 1MB]
This is the May 22, 2019 hearing on "Searching for Solutions in Syria: The Trump Administration's Strategy," held before the U.S. House Committee on Foreign Affairs. From the opening statement of Eliot Engel: "I view the crisis in Syria as one of the greatest tragedies of our time. I have dealt with the Syrian issue for the entire length of time that I have been in Congress, even when very few people were talking about Syria. But now, these past years, it is just impossible. It really makes you cry. Hundreds of thousands of innocents murdered at the hands of a brutal dictator, a butcher, Bashar al-Assad; barrel bombs and chemical weapons used against civilians. We have seen the images of his cruelty on shocking display here right in this room when we hosted Caesar, the military photographer who defected to show the world the barbarity of the regime. Millions upon millions more driven from their homes, a massive humanitarian crisis. And from the outside, a collective failure of global leadership to put a stop to the violence year after year after year. It breaks my heart. And it is a failure of leadership in this country as well as around the world." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: James F. Jeffrey.
