SD Senators on Syria
Meantime today, we asked South Dakota US Senator John Thune about the sequence of events that appears to have opened the door for Russian-led brokering of a chemical weapons surrender by Syria.
The Republican Senator says postponing a congressional vote on military action was the only logical response, but he's still not sure he can support the call for military action in Syria.
And Senator Tim Johnson released the following statement, "I met today with President Obama, and he made a forceful case that action needs to be taken regarding Syria's use of chemical weapons. Tonight he will take that message to the American people. I am hopeful that we can still find a diplomatic solution. I encourage President Obama to pursue action at the U.N. to build international support and determine the sincerity of the Russian and Syrian proposal."
