Congressman Jim Bridenstine on Use of Force in Syria
Tulsa, OK, September 2, 2013 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
"I am pleased that President Obama is seeking Congressional authorization to use U.S. military force in Syria. As a combat veteran of Iraq and Afghanistan, I believe that the use of U.S. military force should be selective, based on America's national security interests. Thus far, President Obama has failed to clearly define America’s national security interests in Syria or explain how a limited cruise missile strike would contribute to achieving our strategic objectives. I look forward to hearing the President's case, but right now I'm skeptical."
Congressman Jim Bridenstine, representing Oklahoma’s 1st District and a member of the House Armed Services Committee, made the preceding statement regarding President Obama's decision to seek congressional authorization for the use of force against Syria.
