Obama’s Syria War Call Faces Growing Congressional Opposition

•, by Jason Ditz
 It isn’t clear if this is false bravado or simply the impression the administration has gotten from only talking to the tireless hawks in the leadership about the war, but Congressmen are overwhelmingly suggesting it’s going to be a “tough sell.

More and more Congressmen are going public with their opposition to the war, and with experts saying the administration’s “evidence” is flimsy, there is little reason to think they can coax the “on the fence” voters onto the pro-war side.

Among the unquestioning hawks, there’s been no small amount of annoyance that President Obama decided to bring it to a vote, for fear that they’re not going to win. Kerry’s suggestion that the president had the “right” to attack Syria even if Congress told them not to may well be an effort to placate the hawks.
