The Pentagon says every site targeted in the air strikes in Syria was hit. Lieutenant General Kenneth McKenzie spoke in a press briefing Saturday. Pentagon spokeswoman Dana White remarked that the strikes were orchestrated to minimize collateral damage. She also said the attacks were justified, legitimate, and proportionate in response to a chemical weapons attack on a town outside Damascus. McKenzie said the size of the strikes overwhelmed Syria's air defenses. He called the strikes precise, overwhelming, and effective.
He remarked that he believes the attacks set Syria's chemical weapons program back for years.
