In a statement today, 2nd District Republican Rep. John Kline said it is up to President Obama to make the case to the American people for military action against Syria in the wake of last month's chemical attack.
"The horrific acts by the Bashar Assad regime of using chemical weapons to kill citizens including children is anathema and unacceptable in our country and around the world," Kline said. "While I am disappointed the President put the U.S. in a difficult position by publicly using a 'red line' with Syria, America's credibility is now in question and the world is watching. I am pleased the President is reaching out to Congress, but he must make the case to the American people and provide a clear and concise plan to stop Assad and warn others this type of behavior will not be tolerated."
A story in today's paper includes statements on the Syria situation from three Democrats — 1st District Rep. Tim Walz and Sens. Al Franken and Amy Klobuchar.
