Peterson statement on Syria

Sep 3, 2013 Issues: Defense and National Security

Statement from Congressman Collin Peterson on U.S. Military intervention in Syria:

"What's going on in Syria is deplorable, but at this point, I don't see how U.S. military action will accomplish anything toward ending the turmoil over there or helping the people of Syria which is my main concern. Along with my constituents, I am opposed to intervention.  I am willing to listen to the President and others, but I haven't heard anything at this point that will change my mind."
