All VT Congressional Delegation Opposes U.S. Military Action in Iraq

Posted June 19, 2014 at 7:05am

Vermont Public Radio reports that “All three members of Vermont’s Congressional delegation say the current situation in Iraq is largely a civil war that needs to be resolved by the Iraqi people and not by U.S. military action.”  

“Sen. Patrick Leahy says he was strongly opposed to sending American troops into Iraq 11 years ago, and he feels the same way now.”  

“Leahy also thinks there are many problems with President Obama ordering selected air strikes against the militant forces that are threatening the government of Prime Minister Maliki.”
