Senator: Vote on Syria resolution might be delayed
By BRADLEY KLAPPER
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Sen. John Barrasso says the Senate Foreign Relations Committee may not vote Wednesday on a resolution authorizing President Barack Obama's proposed military intervention in Syria. The Wyoming Republican, a member of the panel, said it was still meeting on the resolution.
Word of the possible delay came after Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., said he did not support the latest version of the Senate resolution. McCain, an outspoken advocate of intervention, said he wants more than cruise missile strikes and other limited action.
On Tuesday, the Senate Foreign Relations Committee's leaders drafted a resolution that would permit Obama to order a "limited and tailored" military mission against Syria, as long as it doesn't exceed 90 days and involves no American troops on the ground for combat operations.
