WASHINGTON D.C. (WKZO) -- A Michigan Congressman thinks the White House should consult with them before launching its “limited air strike” on Syria, 

A U.N. investigations team looking into the use of chemical weapons in Syria has left Damascus and arrived in Lebanon, clearing one of the obstacles to any military action against the Syrian regime.

It may take the U.N. Team a couple of weeks to report their findings but its clear the U.S. Government has their own intelligence on that issue.

Republican House Intelligence Committee Chair Mike Rogers of Michigan wants Congress to sign off on any attack.

He says if it’s a matter of urgency then President Obama should call Congress back to session to deal with the issue.  It’s not clear if his colleagues would agree.

Congress isn’t scheduled to get back into session until the second week in September.

So far only France has endorsed a U.S. Strike on Syria.
