Oregon Congressman Peter DeFazio has weighed in on the possible war on Syria, saying:
I have yet to hear the administration answer two simple questions—what are our objectives and what is our long-term strategy in this conflict. This situation is incredibly fluid, but I currently do not support an open-ended, ill-defined intervention in another civil war. It’s abundantly clear that there’s no easy resolution to this conflict and the need for or potential effectiveness of U.S. military involvement is questionable at best.
The Senate Foreign Relations Committee voted Sept. 4 to authorize a U.S. strike on Syria. Yesterday the Washington Post documented Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) playing video poker on his iPhone.
McCain joked about it on Twitter.
