Rep. Lipinski Applauds Decision to Consult Congress on Syria

08/31/2013


      
U.S. Rep. Dan Lipinski (IL-3) issued the following statement today on the President announcing he will seek Congressional approval for the use of force in Syria:

I am happy that the President heeded the call I made - along with a large number of my House colleagues - that he consult with Congress before launching any military action in Syria. There is a serious humanitarian crisis in Syria and there is a threat that the conflict spreads. And the use of chemical weapons is a serious violation of prohibitions against the use of such weapons. But before I would approve the use of force I need to understand not only the proof of chemical weapons use, but also what military actions the President is planning and what the risks and benefits of these actions are in the short term and the long term.
