The Marietta Daily Journal – Handel speaks out against action on Syria NSA spying

Handel said given that she was asked about her position on Syria as soon as she walked in the door of the pub, she wanted to address that topic first.

“Based on what I know today, I would vote no against military action in Syria,” Handel said.

Handel gave credit to President Obama for bringing the issue to Congress.

“However, we are where we are today because of lack of leadership, we’ve been leading from behind when it comes to foreign policy matters, this line in the sand was drawn many months ago, nearly a year ago, I believe, and yet as it was crossed nothing happened,” Handel said. “We have to always put U.S. national security interests first, and, as of now, the president has not articulated the mission, clearly defined the mission and objectives of that mission to warrant and sanction going in with military action at this time.”
