Washington, DC - Today, Congressman Patrick McHenry (NC-10) released the following statement on possible United States military action in Syria:
"After reviewing the evidence and plan presented by the Administration, I do not believe there is a compelling national interest or clear mission for our engagement in the Syrian Civil War. Coupled with the overwhelming and near-unanimous feedback from my constituents opposing military involvement, I cannot support US military action in Syria."
