U.S. Senate committee approves military strike on Syria, as Obama argues U.S. credibility is on the line
A Senate panel has voted to give President Barack Obama the authority to use military force against Syria in response to a deadly chemical weapons attack.
The vote Wednesday was 10-7, with one senator voting present. The full Senate is expected to vote on the measure next week.
The resolution would permit Obama to order a limited military mission against Syria, as long as it doesn’t exceed 90 days and involves no American troops on the ground for combat operations. (Photo: AP Photo/ Scanpix Sweden/Jessica Gow)
