President said he will let Congress debate and vote on military action against the Middle Eastern country, after secretary of state says there is little doubt the regime launched a chemical weapons attack on insurgents.
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 killed hundreds of children and violated international rules of war.
"I know that the country will be stronger if we take this course, and our actions will be even more effective," he said.
For people living on Long Island's South Shore, that means Rep. Peter King, a long-time supporter of fighting Middle Eastern regimes that harbor terrorists, will be responsible for representing their voices in the debate.
King, in a statement issued this weekend, blasted the President for not authorizing the attack.
“President Obama is abdicating his responsibility as commander-in-chief and undermining the authority of future presidents. The President does not need Congress to authorize a strike on Syria. ... The President doesn't need 535 Members of Congress to enforce his own redline,” he said.
