Rep. Miller Statement on President Obama's Announcement Regarding Syria


Location: Concord, CA

U.S. Rep. George Miller (D-Contra Costa County) issued the following statement today following President Obama's announcement that he would seek Congressional approval to strike Syria:

"The President has wisely chosen to seek approval from Congress for any possible military action in Syria in response to the use of chemical weapons. I joined many of my colleagues in recent days in calling on the President to seek authorization from Congress for any military action. I do not know what the President will ask for from Congress in the days ahead, or whether or not I will support his request. I will, of course, give his request the sober and thorough consideration that it deserves.

"But one thing I will not support is any request for an open-ended or unlimited American military action in Syria. Like most Americans, I am wary of getting America involved in yet another war. I will weigh this concern against the very serious concern I share with the President over the use of chemical weapons in violation of the Chemical Weapons Ban Treaty."
