McConnell Opposes Syria Strike

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) "announced his opposition to authorizing strikes on Syria at the same time that it was becoming clearer that the Senate may not proceed with an outright authorization resolution," Roll Call reports.

"McConnell, who is up for re-election in 2014 and facing a conservative challenger, is the only one of the "big four" congressional leaders to oppose striking Syria in response to intelligence suggesting that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad used chemical weapons against his own people."
