Senators lash at Obama policy on Stria
U.S. lawmakers lashed out at the Obama administration’s handling of Syria’s civil war on Wednesday Mar 26, 2014, demanding a stronger American response to the conflict and better communication from the White House about its plans, Senator Robert Menendez, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, expressed deep frustration after Anne Patterson, the assistant secretary of state for Near Eastern affairs, declined to answer a question about strategy in a public setting.
Arizona Republican John McCain, a frequent critic of Obama’s foreign policy, called U.S. Syria policy "a colossal failure."
"The greatest nation in the world has sat by and watched this genocide taking place," the senator said.
