BANGKOK (AP) — U.S. congresswoman and Iraq War veteran Tammy Duckworth says she does not favor U.S. military intervention in Syria and is urging Mideast nations to find a resolution to the crisis.
Duckworth said Thursday that she opposes a U.S. invasion of Syria or arming the rebels out of concern the weapons could be used against Americans.
She said Mideast countries should take the lead in stopping Syria's humanitarian crisis.
Duckworth was a Black Hawk helicopter pilot in Iraq in 2004. She lost both her legs and partial use of one arm in an attack.
