Congressman Jason Smith Statement on Military Action in Syria

Sep 3, 2013
Press Release

WASHINGTON – Today, Congressman Jason Smith expressed his concerns regarding calls for military action in Syria.

“In the Constitution, our Founding Fathers gave Congress the authority to authorize military action. Congress should use that authority to determine the best course of action in dealing with Syria. I have serious concerns about any military involvement in Syria because the situation has no clear national securities connections to the United States and victory of any proposed military action has not been defined.  We should not put our men and women in uniform in harm’s way without clear objectives and a sensible strategy.”
