Lieberman: Failure to Approve Syria Action ‘Would Be Catastrophic’

Lieberman said he was “shocked and disappointed” by President Obama’s decision to delay a possible strike against Syria by asking for congressional approval, as it will give the Assad regime time to disperse and hide military assets and otherwise prepare for an attack. Lieberman argued that “it would be catastrophic” for lawmakers to deny Obama the authority to strike, and said he would do “everything I can” to convince his former colleagues to vote yes.
