Congressman Williams' statement on Syria

Sep 3, 2013
Press Release

Today, U.S. Congressman Roger Williams (TX-25) issued the following statement on the developing situation in Syria.

"It's reprehensible for any nation to use chemical weapons, especially on its own people.  For weeks now, the President and his administration have broadcast to the world what a U.S. response to these horrific acts might entail.  Unfortunately, this has given the Assad regime ample time to protect any military targets.  After attending a classified briefing by the White House on Sunday, I am not convinced that attacking Syria and putting our soldiers at risk is in the best interest of our national security. While I support the President seeking Congressional approval, at this time I cannot and will not support U.S. military intervention in Syria."
