Rep. Adam Schiff represents a district that includes parts of the San Fernando and San Gabriel Valleys.  A member of the House Intelligence committee, he told Take Two he's seen convincing evidence that the Syrian regime has used chemical weapons against its citizens.

Schiff says he thinks it's good that President Obama has asked the Congress for authorization to use military force in Syria.  And he hopes the Congress will construct an authorization bill that is more specific than the one the administration proposes.

He explained that while his constituents, like most Americans, are weary of war, he believes they understand the importance of drawing a line against the use of chemical weapons.
