Arizona’s Kyrsten Sinema among House members back early to work on ISIS issue

PHOENIX — The White House is pushing Congress to vote this week in favor of training and arming Syrian rebels as part of President Obama’s plan to deal with the terror group known as ISIS.

U.S. Rep. Kyrsten Sinema, D- Ariz., said she’s not going to rush to judgment on the issue.

“I think there’s wide consensus across the country that a bombing campaign is appropriate,” Sinema said. “What I don’t know yet is whether additional actions that have been requested by the adminstration are in our best interests.

“Our challenge in Congress is to figure out the most appropriate response to disable and destroy ISIS.”

Sinema said Americans have made it clear that they do not want American boots on the ground in Iraq to fight ISIS.
