Crisis in Syria
Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz. pauses while speaking with reporters outside the White House in Washington, Monday, Sept. 2, 2013, following a closed-door meeting with Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C. and President Barack Obama to discuss the situation with Syria. President Barack Obama, working to persuade skeptical lawmakers to endorse a U.S. military intervention in civil war-wracked Syria, hosted the two leading Capitol Hill foreign policy hawks for talks and directed his national security team to testify before Congress in a determined effort to sell his plan for limited missile strikes against Syrian President Bashar Assad's regime.
