Press Release by Congresswoman Pelosi

Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi

Statement on Kosovo

March 24, 1999

Today is a somber day. Having exhausted all diplomatic avenues, President Clinton believes bombing is now the only vehicle for bringing Slobodan Milosevic to the peace table. Let me be blunt: Milosevic's relentless and escalating actions go far beyond the boundaries of civilized behavior.

I support the President's decision. As a member of the House Select Committee on Intelligence and as the senior Democrat on the Foreign Operations Appropriations Subcommittee, I know that we must act decisively to stop the slaughter and displacement of ethnic Albanians and to bolster the NATO Alliance. Failure to act would result in the further spreading of the Balkan conflagration that threatens regional stability.
