Hagan Statement on Syria

Statement

Location: Washington, DC

U.S. Senator Kay Hagan today released the following statement on President Obama's decision to seek Congressional approval for military intervention in Syria:

"It is shocking and deplorable that the Assad regime would use chemical weapons on its own people, and the international community cannot allow this to happen without serious consequences. I believe seeking Congressional authority is the appropriate way forward. Without putting American troops on the ground, the atrocities in Syria require a strong response that will prevent them from happening again and ensure that Syria's chemical weapons stockpile does not fall into the hands of terrorists and further destabilize the Middle East."
