INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (WLFI) - Senator Dan Coats of Indiana talked Syria today on the Senate floor.
The Republican member of the Senate Intelligence Committee said he believes the purpose of the proposed military attack is to defend President Obama's own credibility.
"I am certain that if the president had not drawn his 'red line,' we would not be having this discussion," said Coats. "In that case, Assad's use of such weapons would be roundly condemned as yet another example of his horrendous brutality.
The senator said the vast majority of Hoosiers he's heard from are opposed to U.S. military engagement in Syria.
Senator Coats has not yet made public how he intends to vote on the resolution.
He said many questions still need to be answered, so he plans to wait for the president's address tomorrow night.
