Bishop Statement on U.S. Military Action in Syria

September 12, 2013
Press Release

Congressman Rob Bishop (UT-01) released the following statement in response to the President's remarks on Syria:

"After attending classified briefings and having given serious consideration to the Administration's proposal, I believe it is in the best interest of the United States to refrain from taking military action in Syria.  The President's handling of this matter has created far more questions than have been answered. Much remains unclear about our goals and how we would ultimately define success and that seems to be due to the fact that the President and his advisers are still trying to figure it out."
