Boehner Asks Obama 14 Questions on Syria

Some lawmakers on Capitol Hill not pleased Obama has not consulted them about possible responses to suspected chemical attack last week


House Speaker John Boehner sent a strongly worded letter to President Obama on Wednesday, urging him to provide answers to pressing questions about possible military action in Syria.

"I have conferred with the chairmen of the national security committees who have received initial outreach from senior Administration officials, and while the outreach has been appreciated, it is apparent … that the outreach has, to date, not reached the level of substantive consultation," Boehner wrote in the letter.
