Potential Use of Chemical Weapons in Syria
I was disturbed to hear the reports of chemical weapons use in Syria. The UN inspection team on the ground should look into these new claims and determine if the regime has once again employed the use of these terrible weapons. This should also serve to refocus the attention of the US and international community. Hundreds continue to be killed in Syria on a weekly basis. And once again, the Administration's red line appears to have been crossed. I continue to believe that the US should consider assertive ways to end the atrocities committed against the Syrian people. Our national security interests continue to be at stake - every day that Assad remains in power is a benefit to Iran and the terrorist group Hezbollah.
