Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- U.S. Congressman Bob Gibbs (OH-7) released the following statement regarding the evolving situation in Syria.

“The President’s current plan does not meet the threshold for an authorization of military force resolution against Syria. Any type of military action must have clear and coherent objectives on how we can move forward.  As this situation evolves, we need to approach it with clear intentions for the best possible outcome. This will require the President to make the case to Congress and to the American people.”  -- U.S. Rep. Bob Gibbs (OH-7)
