Obama Addresses Skeptics, Lawmakers
About Syria 9/3/13
WASHINGTON - Any U.S. strikes against the Syrian regime in retaliation for an alleged chemical weapons attack on Syrian civilians are not expected before next week when Congress gets back from summer recess.
Meanwhile, President Barack Obama continues to try to get House and Senate members to support such an attack.
Obama meets today with members of House and Senate committees and his secretary of state, defense secretary and joint chiefs chairman plan to appear before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. There's also a classified briefing with Congress.
