Obama To Seek Approval For Syria Strikes

U.S. President Barack Obama said Saturday that the United States "should take military action against Syrian targets" over its alleged use of chemical weapons, but added that he will seek congressional authorization for the move.

In a televised address from the White House Rose Garden, the president appealed for congressional leaders to consider their responsibilities and values in debating U.S. military action over Syria`s alleged chemical weapons use. "Today I`m asking Congress to send a message to the world that we are united as one nation," he said.
