Clinton Splits with Obama on Syria

"A top Syrian rebel commander has issued a desperate plea for weapons from Western governments to prevent the fall of his forces in Aleppo, pushing the Obama administration to decide quickly whether to agree to arm rebels for the first time or risk the loss of another rebel stronghold just days after the regime's biggest victory," the Wall Street Journal reports.

Meanwhie, Politico reports Bill Clinton told Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) he agrees that Obama should act more forcefully to support anti-Assad rebels in Syria, saying the American public elects presidents and members of Congress "to see down the road" and "to win."
