Sen. Moran Statement on President Obama’s Remarks on Syria

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) released the following statement today following President Obama’s speech from the White House on military action against Syria:

“After meeting with President Obama yesterday, and reviewing his speech to Americans last night, I remain strongly opposed to the use of military force in Syria. It is becoming increasingly clear that the President does not have a coherent strategy for intervention. He continually fails to detail the parameters of our national security interests, goals and an exit strategy.

“A vote in Congress has been put on hold as the Administration waits to see whether Russia’s interest in a diplomatic solution is genuine. I have serious doubts, and should the negotiations result in nothing, I expect the President to return to Capitol Hill and allow Congress to use its Constitutionally-vested power to debate and vote on whether to intervene in Syria. Our country cannot afford another conflict that taxes our resources without achieving goals that advance American interests.”
