Under questioning from Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), Gen. Mark Milley testified at a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing that Assad’s arsenal of chemical weapons should be attacked.
“The President said that Assad is an animal, who killed innocent children by using chlorine gas, and maybe some other form of gas, and he is going to pay a big price. Do you agree with that statement Mr. Secretary — that Assad should pay a big price?” Graham said, directing the question to Secretary of the Army Mark Esper.
Esper declined to comment on Graham’s question.
Milley, however, did not hesitate to answer.
