Risch: Stop the rhetoric, get the chem weapons

 

Sen. Jim Risch, R-Idaho, is becoming a "go-to" guy for cable news on Syria. Here he is on MSNBC, saying, among other things, that Russian President Vladimir Putin's claims are laughable and that it's time to stop the rhetoric and concentrate on getting Syria's chemical weapons.

Why Risch? Partly because he's on the Senate Foreign Relations and Intelligence committees, and partly because he's pretty quotable.
