House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) released a statement late Thursday following a conference call briefing between Congressional leaders and the Obama administration that expressed her support for potential “measured, targeted and limited” military action in Syria.

“What Assad has done is outside the realm of basic human rights. On this evening’s call, I expressed my appreciation for the measured, targeted and limited approach the President may be considering,” Pelosi said in the written statement.

Pelosi also said in the statement that those members of Congress on the call were “assured during the call there would be ongoing consultation with Congress.”

“On the call, I agreed with Speaker Boehner and other Members who stated that there needs to be more consultation with all Members of Congress and additional transparency into the decision making process and timing, and that the case needs to be made to the American people,” she added.
