Shaheen votes "yes" to limited U.S. military force against Syria
AP - New Hampshire Senator Jeanne Shaheen is part of a small majority in the Senate Foreign Relations Committee that voted for a resolution authorizing limited U.S. military force against Syria. Shaheen said Wednesday that failing to take action the Assad regime's use of chemical weapons poses a signifcant and direct threat to American National Security interests. The resolution she voted for is limited in time and scope and does not authorize American troops on the ground. She said it permits an appropriate response to Assad's international weapons violations "that will rightfully signal to his and other regimes, like those in Iran and Korea," that the United States won't tolerate the use of weapons of mass destruction.
