Scott: More Answers Needed Before Action On Syria

ATLANTA (AP/WAOK) – U.S. Rep. David Scott says “more answers are needed” before U.S. resources are spent on what he described as another Middle Eastern conflict.

The Atlanta Democrat said in a statement that he’s written President Barack Obama to urge that Congress be consulted before military action is taken against Syria.

Scott issued his statement as Congress considers possible military action in the Middle East. The debate comes after Syrian President Bashar Assad’s regime was blamed by the U.S. and the Syrian opposition for an Aug. 21 alleged chemical weapons attack in a rebel-held suburb of the Syrian capital of Damascus.

Obama said he has decided that the U.S. should take military action against Syria but is seeking congressional authorization. A vote is expected after Congress returns to work on Monday.
