(FOX NEWS) Sen. John McCain, President Obama’s biggest cheerleader on Capitol Hill for a strike in Syria, said Wednesday that he would not support a Senate panel’s draft resolution authorizing the use of force.
The decision is a setback for the administration’s effort to win swift support from Congress for an attack. McCain’s opposition is likely a negotiating tactic to win more aggressive language in the resolution. But it’s unclear how far the rest of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee will go, with some members worried the resolution goes too far. A vote on the committee level was expected as early as Wednesday.
