Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is backing President Barack Obama's call for Congress to approve military action in Syria, Politico reports.
“Secretary Clinton supports the President's effort to enlist the Congress in pursuing a strong and targeted response to the Assad regime’s horrific use of chemical weapons,” a Clinton aide told Politico.
On Saturday, Obama announced he feels action in Syria is warranted but said he had decided to ask Congress to support a strike punishing Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's regime for the alleged use of chemical weapons.
Clinton isn't the only one backing Obama's moves on Syria. House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) and House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) both said Tuesday they would back the president's call to use military force against Syria.
