Sep9, 2013, The Tennessean- U.S. Sen. Lamar Alexander said Monday that he will vote against military action in Syria.
“America’s credibility is not helped” by this kind of military strike, Alexander told reporters shortly before a speech to the Rotary Club of Nashville. The statement marks the first time that Alexander has said definitively that he will vote against a resolution authorizing a strike on Syria.
The position puts Alexander at odds with U.S. Sen. Bob Corker, the top-ranking Republican on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.
