Fitzpatrick Comments on President’s Syria Address

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Mike Fitzpatrick (PA-8) released the following statement Tuesday night following President Obama’s national address regarding the situation in Syria:

“It is in our nation's interest, and the world's interest, to resolve this crisis diplomatically.  Over the past week the President has arrived there, and that is a good thing.
 
As diplomatic channels are pursued, efforts for humanitarian aid must be addressed in the near term.
 
With the President continuing to keep our soldiers at the ready for a military strike, I implore him to set a clear course which does not draw us deeper into a conflict that is not supported by the American people.”
