Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-N.Y.) says a recent congressional trip to military bases in the Middle East left him with the impression that the U.S. has “no plan at all” in Syria and Libya.
“I left the trip with more faith in the plan as it relates to Iraq, and I will say, unfortunately, as far as the situation in places like Syria and Libya, there really is no plan at all,” he told John Catsimatidis on “The Cats Roundtable” on New York’s AM-970 on Sunday.
“In some respects, there are reasons to be happier, others a little bit more concerned depending on what part of the complicated map you’re looking at,” he added.
Zeldin, a member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee and an Iraq War veteran, led a bipartisan Congressional delegation to Iraq, Jordan and Kuwait over Christmas.
