Sen. Coats delivers remarks on Syria

Senator Dan Coats (R-Ind.) spoke on the Senate floor regarding the president's request for congressional authorization to strike Syria on Monday:
"Make no mistake, it is the credibility issue that has brought us to this pass, and the credibility issue is of President Obama's own making – his and his alone," said Coats in his remarks on the Senate floor. "So tomorrow evening, the president will need to explain to the American people exactly what will be achieved by this limited, focused attack beyond simply a token punishment for a horrendous crime and defense of his credibility. 

Coats also said that he has been meeting with Hoosiers on the issue and so far a majority are opposed to a strike on Syria.

The President will address the nation at 9:00pm Eastern Time Tuesday.
