Rep. Peters’ Statement on Syria

SAN DIEGO, CA – Today, Congressman Scott Peters (CA-52) released the following statement regarding the developing situation in Syria and President Obama’s announcement that he would seek Congressional approval before taking military action:“Reports that the Assad regime has used chemical weapons against its own people, including children, are shocking.  Acts like these are unconscionable and reprehensible.  I understand President Obama’s concern that these atrocities not be ignored.“As I consider the President’s request for support, I will need to determine our intended objective, the specific actions to be taken, the expected response, our exit strategy, and how these efforts will protect American interests both in the region and here at home.  San Diegans have paid a particularly heavy price for our engagement in Iraq and Afghanistan in the past decade.  That’s why I welcome the President’s call for Congressional input on this very serious matter. This debate will allow Congress and the American people to have more clarity on the facts that have been gathered and on what our commitments will be moving forward.  I personally look forward to a fully informed discussion in the coming weeks.”
