Chambliss Responds to the President's Remarks on Syria


Location: Brunswick, GA

Today, U.S. Sen. Saxby Chambliss, vice chairman of the U.S. Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, released the following statement regarding President Obama's announcement that he will seek congressional approval for a military strike on Syria:

"I believe the evidence is clear that the president's red-line was crossed long ago, and the United States must respond. However, while I appreciate the president seeking congressional approval, he should have already presented Congress with a strategy and objectives for military action, including what impact this will have on our allies and enemies alike in the region. Leadership is about reacting to a crisis, and quickly making the hard and tough decisions. The president should have demanded Congress return immediately and debate this most serious issue."
