Sen. Paul Statement on Syria

Aug 28, 2013

Sen. Rand Paul released the following statement today regarding reports of potential military action by the Obama Administration in Syria.

"The United States should condemn the use of chemical weapons. We should ascertain who used the weapons and we should have an open debate in Congress over whether the situation warrants U.S. involvement. The Constitution grants the power to declare war to Congress not the President.

"The war in Syria has no clear national security connection to the United States and victory by either side will not necessarily bring in to power people friendly to the United States," Sen. Paul said.
