Retired Adjutant General Weighs In On Syria

Charleston, Kanawha County, W.Va.

Most national polls indicate a majority of Americans oppose a military strike on Syria.

But does that inaction make us look weak?

Retired West Virginia National Guard Adjutant General Allen Tackett weighed in on the impact of military action in Syria. Tackett appeared as a guest on Eyewitness News.

"I certainly think he put the facts on the table,” Tackett said of President Barack Obama. “People know he drew a red line several months ago and said the U.S. would be forced to use military action. Now that weapons have been used, no action has taken place and that's going to be a tough sell for him."
