Congressman Mac Thornberry says he does not support President Obama's request to use military force in Syria.

After participating in a number of hearings and classified briefings Thornberry says, "I am extremely doubtful that the Russian offer to put Syria's chemical weapons under international control is genuine or even possible.

But regardless of the outcome of that offer, I am concerned that the administration does not have a clear, obtainable military plan to advance effectively the national security interests of the United States."
