SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) -- Members of South Dakota's congressional delegation generally like President Obama's decision to consult with Congress before carrying out military strikes against Syria. The president has said he will seek congressional backing for limited strikes against Syria for allegedly using chemical weapons. The Argus Leader reports that Democratic Senator Tim Johnson has not taken a position on whether the U.S. should strike Syria, but he says Obama is correct to seek congressional approval. Republican Senator John Thune says it's important for the president to present his case to the American people and build a coalition of support from other countries before taking action. Republican Representative Kristi Noem says she is opposed to strikes against Syria, but the issue needs to be debated by Congress and the public.
