Sen. Fischer will not support action in Syria

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Nebraska U.S. Senator Deb Fischer announced Wednesday morning that she will oppose military intervention in Syria.  Fischer said "All along, I have called for the President to present the American people with a coherent plan for military action in Syria.  While the president made an impassioned moral case in last night’s address, his argument regarding a significant U.S. national interest remains weak.”  Since President Obama initially announced his intention to seek congressional approval for a military strike on Syria, Senator Fischer participated in several classified briefings and meetings with the President, including a private working dinner with the President and Vice President Biden on Sunday.
