(FOX NEWS) House Speaker John Boehner said Tuesday he supports President Obama’s call for a military strike on Syria, as other congressional leaders joined in making the case for an attack — giving the plan a big boost ahead of a key hearing on Capitol Hill.
“The use of chemical weapons is a barbarous act. It’s pretty clear to me that the United Nations is unable to take action, NATO not likely to take action. The United States for our entire history has stood up for democracy and freedom for people around the world,” Boehner said. “I’m going to support the president’s call for action.”
