Donnelly on Syria: Plenty of questions


By Mark Johnson

Sen. Joe Donnelly (D-Ind.) has questions about a potential U.S. response to the chemical warfare deployed against its cities by leadership. Today, he addressed the Zionsville Chamber of Commerce Government Affairs and Economic Development Committee.

“It is very clear that sarin gas was used,” Donnelly said. “Over 400 children were killed in this way. Medical records are available that show this.

“My question are these:  If we have a response, what does that response do? What is the plan and where does it lead? If there is no response, what does that do to our credibility as a world leader?’ This is not about what is best for the Republicans or best for Democrats, but what is best for America.”

While Donnelly said there is no timeline on a response to the crisis in Syria, he did say that he would depart for Washington tonight to meet with the Armed Services Committee on tomorrow morning.
