Manchin goes to D.C. for Syria briefings

Updated: Monday, September 2 2013, 02:53 AM EDT

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) released the following statement on suspending his West Virginia events following Labor Day to return to Washington to attend briefings on the situation in Syria.

 “The decision to authorize the use of U.S. military force and weapons is one of the most difficult that a country can make, and is not one that should be made without all the available facts or without the consultation of Congress. I am pleased that the President decided to seek congressional approval before striking Syria. Beginning Tuesday, I will be suspending all events I had scheduled in West Virginia to return to Washington to attend briefings with the Senate Armed Services and Foreign Relations Committees and with Administration officials to ensure I have all the facts and intelligence available to me before the Senate begins debate on the authorization of force.”
