Over 50 House Democrats oppose "unwise war"

At least 52 co-signers have signed Rep. Barbara Lee's letter, stating, "While the ongoing human rights violations and continued loss of life are horrific, they should not draw us into an unwise war - especially without adhering to our own constitutional requirements."
(Interestingly, in some of the sloppiest reporting of the day, the Washington Post used this letter as the basis for a misleading headline which blared,
"More than 50 House Democrats also want Syria strike resolution", and began with the line,
"There appears to be notable bipartisan support for a formal congressional resolution authorizing a U.S. military strike on Syria...", leaving it to those who read beyond the headlines to discover that Democrats were opposing unwise, unauthorized action, and asserting their constitutional responsibilities, not clamoring for military strikes, as the Post's misleading headline suggested.)
The full text of Rep. Lee's letter, is available at Rep. Lee's Congressional website: http://lee.house.gov/sites/lee.house.gov/file...

It will be interesting to see how the Republicans vote after all their anti-Obama rhetoric.
