President Barack Obama this weekend said he will let the U.S. congress decide on whether to attack Syria after an alleged chemical weapons attack by Syrian President Bashar Assad that isreported to have killed more than 1,400 people and violated international rules of war. Written by Mike D'Onofrio
"I know that the country will be stronger if we take this course, and our actions will be even more effective," he said.
So as Congressional committees grill Secretary of State John Kerry and Congress prepares to vote on whether or not to strike Syria, how do you think your Congressman, Rep. Rodney Frelinghuysen (R-11), should vote?
Frelinghuysen, who just returned from the Middle East region,wrote on his website, "Now that the President has decided to ask Congress for authority to strike Syria, I await the debate.
“... While I am horrified by the deaths of so many innocent men, women and children, I want to know how the President’s strategic plans will change the course of this civil war!(sic) I cannot support any authorization unless and until my questions are answered fully. ... My sole interest is in doing what is best for the United States of America." Now is the time to tell Frelinghuysen where you stand. Should he vote in favor of the Syria attack? Vote in our poll above and let us know in the comments. -- Henry Powderly contributed to this article.
