US Lawmakers Want To Be Consulted by Obama on Possible Intervention in Syria

Some on Capitol Hill don't feel like they've been fully informed


(Reuters)—U.S. lawmakers urged President Barack Obama on Monday to consult them as he decides how to respond to last week's apparent poison gas attack in the Damascus suburbs, with some complaining that they have not been fully informed.

Secretary of State John Kerry issued a tough statement on Monday, saying that the suspected chemical weapons attack was a "moral obscenity" and accused Syria's government of covering it up.
