N.H. Delegation's Reaction To Obama Remarks: A Mix Of Doubt, Hope On Syria
New Hampshire Sen. Kelly Ayotte says she's skeptical of the credibility of Russian President Vladimir Putin and Syrian President Bashar Assad and the ability of the United Nations to execute a plan for Syria to relinquish its chemical weapons.
But Ayotte, commenting after President Barack Obama addressed the nation Tuesday night, said if the effort is successful, the world would be safer.
Other members of the state's delegation said they were hopeful a diplomatic resolution can be reached in Syria. Reps. Carol Shea-Porter and Annie Kuster said they continue to be concerned about the unintended consequences of possible U.S. military intervention.
Sen. Jeanne Shaheen said immediate, serious and credible action is needed from Russia and Syria.
