 Congressman: Obama Setting Scary and Dangerous Precedent

One of the most respected and veteran voices in Congress told WND it would be a “scary and dangerous precedent” if President Obama does not seek approval for a military strike on Syria because there is no “direct threat to the United States.”

“It isn’t like the United States has been attacked,” observed Rep. Frank Wolf, R-Va., a 17-term congressman whose tenure extends back to Ronald Reagan’s 1980 victory.

President Obama has been considering whether to order a military strike on Syria for allegedly using chemical weapons against its own people on Aug. 21.

    Obama didn't pull the plug because he is scare of the consequences, that is why he is waiting for approval from congress, in case anything goes wrong he can blame congress and say it their fault.

    It was nice to see obama with his tail between his legs.
