OKLAHOMA CITY- An Oklahoma senator says he is opposed to U.S. military action in Syria.

Sen. Jim Inhofe issued a statement calling on President Obama to present a detailed plan of action to Congress.

It stated, “What we are seeing in Syria is abominable as thousands upon thousands of innocent children and families are being murdered while millions more are being driven from their homes. Today, I told the administration that I cannot support military action in Syria unless the president presents to Congress his broader strategy in the region that addresses our national security interests and the budget to support it.”

President Obama has said he has not made a decision yet about a strike on Syria but says he is evaluating his options.

The president says the U.S. has concluded the Syrian government carried out chemical weapons attacks and there must be consequences.

U.N inspectors were back at work Wednesday looking for chemical weapons in the country.
