Congressman David Scott called for President Obama to consult with Congress before taking military action in Syria. Congressman Scott sent a letter to the President expressing his concerns about the matter. A copy of the letter is attached.
“Congress must be consulted before military action is taken against Syria,” Congressman Scott said. “More answers are needed before U.S. resources, both personnel and funding, are spent on another Middle Eastern conflict. Americans want clarity in understanding the reasons that action would need to be taken. They also want to hear the overall strategy and goals of a military campaign so that they can have confidence that the wise decisions have been made and that our allies have been fully engaged."
Congressman Scott is a long-term member of the NATO Parliamentary Assembly and a former member of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs.
