Congressman Chris Smith (NJ-04) today gave a live 45-minute interview on C-SPAN's Washington Journal about President Obama's push to use military force in Syria, and on Smith's own resolution to create a Syrian War Crimes Tribunal.

    On set with moderator Pedro Echevarria, Smith took questions from across the nation, defending his own opposition to President Obama's plan to strike Syria, and recalling Secretary of State John Kerry evading Smith's direct question during a hearing last week as to whether or not there is evidence that Syrian President Assad actually ordered a chemical attack.

    Smith said a war crimes court should be formed immediately, and not after hostilities cease.

    "Indict Assad right now," Smith said. "There should enough evidence." Click here or on image above to watch the video of Washington Journal interview.
