Enzi opposes Syria intervention

Sen. Mike Enzi (R-Wyo.) will vote against military intervention in Syria, he announced Monday evening.

"President Obama painted himself in a corner with his 'red line' comments and now he is trying to transfer ownership to Congress. It's unfortunate that he has put our country in this position, but it's a no sale for me. We shouldn't use our military to intervene in the conflict without specific, definable and achievable U.S. policy and strategic objectives. It is too much to risk," Enzi says in a statement. "Folks from both the right and left agree that we should stay out of Syria and under the current circumstances, that is my position."

Enzi's announcement comes on the heels of his primary opponent, Liz Cheney (R), announcing her own opposition to authorizing air strikes, a move that surprised some considering her hawkish foreign policy views.
