FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP) — Former Sen. Richard Lugar and retired Congressman Lee Hamilton are weighing in on Syria's alleged use of sarin gas as they keep their fingers on the world's pulse even after leaving office.
Hamilton has renewed his call for legislation requiring a president to confer with Congress before deploying armed forces. Lugar is being sought out for his views on efforts to rid Syria of its chemical weapons.
California Sen. Barbara Boxer invoked Lugar's assessment of the threat Syria poses to the United States earlier this month during a debate on whether to authorize airstrikes against Syrian targets.
Hamilton tells The Journal Gazette that some people pay attention to his opinion and others don't. But that won't stop him from sharing his views.
