Obama Will Seek Authorization for Syria Attack

President Obama announced he would seek congressional authorization to launch an attack on Syria over its use of chemical weapons on its own citizens, NBC News reports.

Said Obama: "I know well we are weary of war but we are the United States of America and we must not and cannot turn a blind eye to what happened in Damascus."

Los Angeles Times: "Congressional approval could prove difficult, as conservatives and liberal Democrats have expressed uneasiness with a military campaign."
