Wis. Rep. Duffy says he won't back action in Syria

By The Associated Press. CREATED Sep 4, 2013

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Wisconsin Rep. Sean Duffy says he won't support a resolution for military intervention in Syria.

The U.S. has accused Syrian President Bashar Assad of using chemical weapons against his own people, and President Barack Obama has asked Congress to authorize a military strike.
   
Duffy said in a statement Wednesday that Obama did the right thing by seeking Congressional approval, but he didn't think the president had outlined a coherent plan to justify military action.
   
Duffy, a Republican, represents northern Wisconsin.
