Senator Jeff Sessions Reacts to President's Syria Remarks

Posted: Updated:
WASHINGTON -

President Obama addressed the nation Saturday saying he is turning to Congress for support in taking action against Syria.

News 5 reached out to Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions to see what his thoughts are on the President's remarks. Sessions is looking forward to hearing more about the president's plans.

In a statement, Senator Sessions says:

"I look forward to the initiation of a very serious- and overdue- discussion in Congress about Syria and our broader strategy in the chaotic Middle East. It is critical that the Administration articulate a clear national policy as we contemplate further involvement in this dangerous and complex region. Certainly the American people are correct to be concerned about our position in the Middle East, particularly our seeming lack of any clear strategy or purpose."

The Senate and House could cast their vote the week of September 9th.
