Bill Johnson Attends Briefing on Syria

Updated: Monday, September 2 2013, 02:54 AM EDT

WASHINGTON – Rep. Bill Johnson (R-Ohio) released the following statement this afternoon after attending a classified Congressional briefing on the situation in Syria:

 

"Given how important this Congressional briefing was for the President to make his case for taking military action in Syria, I was surprised that neither he, nor the Vice President, nor any cabinet level official was in attendance.  The decision on whether or not to commit American troops and risk American lives when the United States is not directly threatened is a difficult one, and the President has the heavy burden of convincing the Congress and the American people of its merits. I left this afternoon’s briefing with more questions and concerns than I had when I arrived."
