Donald Brand, professor of political science at the College of the Holy Cross, talked to NECN/Channel 3 about his “American Presidency” class, where he is discussing President Barack Obama’s efforts to lobby Congress to authorize military action in Syria.
Brand told reporter Mike Cronin that Obama has already committed himself to a degree. “Because he drew a red line that if Syria used weapons of mass destruction including chemical weapons that that would not be tolerated,” he said.
Brand said Americans are suspicious of further military action in the Middle East, and noted that his students are following the longstanding issue closely. “I asked my students in class yesterday how many would support military action in Syria at this point,” he said, “and no one raised their hand.”
