Secretary of State John Kerry on Sunday defended President Obama's decision to seek congressional approval for a military strike in Syria, saying support from Capitol Hill and the public will give America the legitimacy of a "full-throated" response.

"Our country is much stronger when we act together," Kerry told "Fox News Sunday," one of  the five major Sunday shows on which he appeared. "I think this is a smart decision by the president, a courageous decision."
