Ayotte Statement on Syria
WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Senator Kelly Ayotte (R-NH), a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, today released the following statement regarding Syria:
"In reflecting on the president's speech last night and the many briefings I have received on Syria, despite my best attempts to discern it, I am left with the conclusion that the administration's strategy on Syria is incoherent and inconsistent. While I believe we have important strategic interests in the region, I could not at this time support committing U.S. military force in Syria in the absence of a well thought out strategy and plan to achieve definable military objectives that are consistent with our national security interests and those of our allies."
