WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Rep. Phil Roe, M.D. (R-TN) released the following statement regarding President Obama’s request for Congress to authorize use of military force against the Islamic State:

“The Islamic State is a radical terrorist organization with every intention of bringing their heinous acts of terror to our homeland. We must address this serious threat and act pragmatically and deliberately to eliminate this evil. As is the case with any matter regarding war and peace, before I can support any authorization for use of military force, I must see a clear, strategic plan that includes an exit strategy. I am carefully considering the president’s proposal and I am hopeful we can work together to stop these murderers in their tracks.”
