Opposition to Arm Syrian Rebels

WASHINGTON, DC (PR) - U.S. Rep. Paul Broun, M.D. (GA-10) today spoke on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives in opposition to the McKeon Amendment to H.J. Res. 124. The Amendment would authorize assistance to train and arm Syrian rebels to combat the forces of the Islamic State or ISIL.
