Congressman Jim Gerlach (PA-06) issued the following statement on Wednesday in response to questions about the President's possible use of military force in Syria:

“I believe the War Powers Act is clear that the President cannot undertake military action unless and until there is an attack on the United States, an imminent threat of an attack on our country and its citizens, or Congress otherwise authorizes military action for a specific purpose. None of those conditions have been met with regard to Syria. And if none of those conditions have been met, I believe the President’s use of military force in that country is not appropriate.”
