Scott Statement on President Obama's Speech on Syria


Location: Washington, DC

Congressman Robert C. "Bobby" Scott (VA-03) issued the following statement in reaction to the President's speech on Syria:

"The President again presented a compelling case on why it is so important for the United States and the international community to respond to the atrocities committed by the Syrian government against innocent civilians. I remain concerned, however, about both the legality of any intervention without the support of the United Nations and the potential ramifications of a military intervention that could exacerbate volatility in the region. I am pleased that the President will allow more time for the diplomatic process to work towards a non-military solution and it is my hope that the international community will continue to support us in these diplomatic efforts."
