Today, President Barack Obama proposed increased military cooperation with Russia in Syria. The President has proposed that the US would provide Russia with military resources and intelligence in Syria. In exchange, the President has asked Russia to pressure President Bashar Al-Assad to cease attacks against moderate opposition groups. Congressman Mike Turner released the following statement:

“Russia continues to occupy significant portions of Ukraine and Georgia, challenge US military vessels in the Mediterranean and Black Seas, and is threatening NATO allies. It is incomprehensible that President Obama would agree to share US intelligence and military resources with Russia. President Obama must return to the drawing board and formulate a decisive plan to defeat and destroy ISIS.”
