Noem Reacts To Possible Involvement In Syria

In a conference call this evening, members of the President’s National Security Team are briefing congressional leaders on what the White House believes was the Syrian Government’s role in a deadly nerve gas attack and laying out the parameters for US Military Response, with or without International Partners.
Thursday members of Congress across the country were reacting to the potential attack on Syria, including South Dakota Representative Kristi Noem.
“If the president is going to take action, we need to know why and what his plan is and how we can get out quickly so we don’t utilize all of our resources in something the American people just can’t get behind,” said South Dakota Representative Kristi Noem.
President Obama has still not explained his rationale beyond punishing Syria for using chemicals and deterring the regime from doing it again. Critics say he has yet to provide the legal rationale for military action.
