CLEVELAND -- A difficult question faces Congress when members return from their August recess.
Should they support President Obama's proposed military intervention in Syria?
Rep. Marcia Fudge says the President is correct in seeking to rally popular and Congressional support behind any proposed action.
"All you have to do is look back at Iraq and Afghanistan to understand the situation he is in...I think it's good to pull the country together to get behind what he believes is right....We have to take appropriate deliberate action to address this issue....It is heartbreaking to see the pictures of all the people killed by chemical weapons," she said.
But she said there are too many unanswered questions now to guarantee she would vote "yes."
"I have not gotten enough information to determine if the only alternative is what the President is suggesting.....If I had to vote today, it would be "no," because I don't have enough information as to where we are going, how long we're going to be there, the extent of the military and the cost," she said.
Additional specifics will no doubt be provided to Congress, once members return from their August recess, no later than Sept. 9.
