Further separating himself from the rest of the nay-saying Kansas delegation on Syria, Rep. Mike Pompeo, R-Wichita, co-authored a Washington Post commentary with Rep. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., saying that they “support a well-crafted use-of-force resolution against Syria and urge the president to take decisive, effective military action.” They argued that U.S. credibility is at stake, that the U.S. “has a strong interest in preserving the international taboo against the use of chemical weapons,” and that allies Israel, Jordan and Turkey are at risk. Pompeo and Cotton concluded: “No matter the president’s party or his past failures, all Americans should want, and help, him to succeed when it comes to our national security.”
