Sen. Bob Casey: Syrians need military aid
Question of the Day
Sen. Bob Casey, Pennsylvania Democrat, said Wednesday that he applauded the Obama administration’s efforts to give aid to Syrian refugees, but that more needs to be done to end the three-year civil war.
“The humanitarian aid that our taxpayers have paid for and the Obama administration led, should be noted and it’s rather significant,” he said on MSNBC. “So we should commend the administration for that, but even that is not enough because of the scale of this suffering especially as it relates to children.”
He called on the U.S. to send military aid to moderate or nationalist groups, though it’s become more difficult to differentiate those from extremist groups as the war continues.
“We don’t have to do the fighting, we don’t have to send troops, but we have to help the fighters,” he said.
