Statement by House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers on the President’s Syria Speech

 

"Like all Americans, I am hopeful a diplomatic solution can be reached, however, I am skeptical of any proposal proffered by the Russians and doubt Assad’s motives for agreeing to this plan.  A credible threat of military force will have to remain on the table if diplomatic efforts are to have any hope of succeeding.  Chemical weapons are only one of the many national security threats we face in Syria, and the President still urgently needs to develop and execute a coherent strategy to address all of those threats."
