Congressman Randy Neugebauer Says He Does Not Support U.S Military Strike On Syria [AUDIO]

On Monday’s edition of Lubbock’s First News, Congressman Randy Neugebauer talked with Tom Collins and Laura Mac about the latest going on in Washington.

Congress is back in session today, and the major topic of debate will be whether or not Congress will back President Barack Obama’s request to take military action against Syria. Neugebauer said that at the moment, he is opposed to any kind of military strike against Syria. He explained that a military strike needs to have a military interest or a direct threat to our national security. And so far, President Obama has failed to show either.

“When you go to have a military strike, you have to have a military objective. And if you’re going to use the military, you have to determine what is in our national security interest to exercise that military option. And quite honestly, at the particular point in time, I’m not sure what that is. I don’t think the President’s done a good job of articulating that.”

Neugebauer went on to say that, in addition to many of our own citizens opposing a U.S. strike on Syria, many of the U.S. allies are against it as well. He said that, while our international allies are against chemical weapons being used, none of them are willing to step up an support the U.S. should we attack Syria. He also added that right now, we need to be focused on working on our domestic issues here rather than getting involved in a civil war overseas.

Neugebauer will be attending a classified briefing today to discuss what U.S. action should be towards Syria.
