FPI Resources for the Congressional Debate on Syria

September 9, 2013

Lawmakers will continue to debate this week how the United States should respond to the Assad regime’s recent large-scale chemical attacks.  At the same time, President Obama and his advisers will make the case to the Congress and the American public for an authorization for use of military force (AUMF) to degrade the Iranian-backed Syrian dictatorship’s means of delivering chemical weapons and to deter further attacks with weapons of mass destruction in the Middle East.

The Foreign Policy Initiative (FPI) is closely monitoring the Syria debate in Washington, and believes that the following writings and videos will be helpful as policymakers, lawmakers, and the American public debate how best to respond to the continuing crisis in Syria.
