Rubio Statement On President Seeking Congressional Approval For Military Action In Syria

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL), a member of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence and Senate Foreign Relations Committee, released the following statement on President Obama seeking congressional approval for military action in Syria:

"I agree with the decision to seek Congressional approval before taking military action in Syria. And I believe Congress should return to Washington immediately and begin to debate this issue.

"The United States should only engage militarily when it is pursuing a clear and attainable national security goal. Military action taken simply to send a message or save face does not meet that standard."
