Sen. McCain Doesn't Support Senate Resolution on Syria Intervention

Not a fan of the limited response put forward by the Obama administration

WASHINGTON (AP) — Sen. John McCain says he doesn't support the latest Senate resolution to authorize military force against Syria.

McCain is an outspoken advocate of intervention against Syrian President Bashar Assad's regime and wants more than cruise missile strikes and other limited action.

The Arizona Republican threatened earlier this week to vote against a White House draft resolution unless President Barack Obama promised greater support to Syria's rebels. McCain then came out in favor after meeting Obama at the White House.
