VIDEO: Sen. Risch speaks to CNN on Syria

September 3, 2013 

Speaking after the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations' Tuesday hearing regarding Syria, Sen. Jim Risch, R-Idaho, said he'll listen as the White House makes its case. But he shared his concerns with CNN, including that a strike may carry unplanned and long-lasting ramifications in the Middle East and beyond.

"We all know what day 1 is going to look like," Risch said of a possible attack. "What about day 2, 3, 4 and 5? What does success look like here?"
