·       LD13 Chairman Robert Branch: As your Chairman I feel that it is important to let you know where I stand on this critical issue; I do not support any military action in Syria. Both Syrian government and the insurgents are enemies of the United States. Iran and Hezbollah are supporting the Syrian government, while Al Qaida supports the insurgents. I heard our Senator, John McCain, say that he is for the bombing the air assets of Syria and giving weapons to the insurgents. I am sorry Sen. McCain, but I am not in favor of arming Al Qaida, especially while we are still at war with them; this is insane. Many or our sons and daughters have been fighting these Muslim extremists for over the past 12 years and I think it is time we, the United States, sits this war out and just let our enemies fight each other. This may not be the consensus of the LD, but I just wanted you to know where I stand. - Dr. Bob Branch, Chairman AZ GOP LD13
·       Rep. Matt Salmon (AZ-05), Chairman Of The House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on the Western Hemisphere released the following statement regarding President Obama’s announcement that he will seek Congressional approval for military before taking military action in Syria: “I commend the President for following the Constitution and seeking Congressional approval before taking military action in Syria.  Now it is up to the Administration to convince Congress and the American people that intervening in this two-year long Syrian civil war is in our nation's best interests. If it is proven that the Assad regime used chemical weapons against its own people there must be consequences; the question for the Administration, Congress and the American people, is what should those consequences be.  I will look forward to the President answering many questions regarding urgency of action, strategy and objectives as we take up this debate.”
Salmon joined over 100 of his Republican and Democrat House colleagues in formally requesting President Obama to consult and receive authorization from Congress before ordering use of military force in Syria. See letter here.
