Feinstein Statement on Chemical Weapons Attacks in Syria (Aug. 30)

Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif.

Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Dianne Feinstein released the following statement Friday after Secretary of State John Kerry spoke on last week’s chemical weapons attacks in Syria:

“I listened carefully to what Secretary Kerry had to say and believe his remarks should stir the conscience of the world. He pointed out the high confidence our government has that this was a chemical weapons attack, that it was directed by the Assad regime and that it killed 1,429 people, including at least 426 children.

“The unclassified intelligence assessment released today tracks closely with briefings I have received over the past week. I agree with Secretary Kerry that the world cannot let such a heinous attack pass without a meaningful response, and I hope the international community will take appropriate action.”

 

McKeon Statement on Developments in Syria (Aug. 26)

mug_Buck_mckeonHouse Armed Services Committee Chairman Howard P. “Buck” McKeon, R-Santa Clarita, made the following statement regarding recent developments in Syria:

“I share Americans’ concern with the developing situation in Syria, and I am monitoring events there closely. Using chemical weapons against innocent civilians is unacceptable. No regime can be allowed to do so with impunity.

The President established a red line policy.  I expect the Commander in Chief would consult with Congress in the days ahead as he considers the options available to him.  Drawing red lines before you know what you are willing to do to back them up is folly, but now that American credibility is on the line, the President cannot fail to act decisively.”

    American Credibility isn’t on the line… Obama’s credibility is on the line… and he has demonstrated he has no credibility with his comments about the NSA not spying on Americans… He’s simply lying… of this there is no doubt. So where does Obama’s lying end? Sure, there are signs of chemical weapons use in Syria… but WHO used them? These days, I can’t be sure their use wasn’t backed by the US. PLEASE don’t talk of American credibility… Americans long for the truth just like the rest of the world. Talk about Obama’s credibility and the credibility of Congress. The American people don’t want this war!

    Can’t trust Tyrant Obama the Betrayer with a war. Just look how he betrayed our people in Libya. He was more concerned with getting a good nights sleep and his reelection campaign. He ordered the rescuers to stand down. Then he lied about the murderers.
