District 10 Congressional Representative Michael McCaul says the current crisis in Iraq ‘demands immediate action.’ The local representative says however, that President Obama ‘can’t make a decision.’
Congressman McCaul is the chair of the House Homeland Security Committee.
He issued a statement Friday saying “The deterioration of Iraq is a direct result of the President’s inability to negotiate a status of forces Agreement with the Iraqi government.” He goes on to say that the administration must now address this ‘head on’ with our partners in the region to prevent terrorists from establishing another safe haven and to ensure America’s sacrifices there ‘have not been in vain.’
McCaul did say that President Obama called a press conference Friday in which he said he was having his national security team prepare a range of options. The Congressman called this ‘handwringing.’
