Hillary Backs Obama on Syria

On Tuesday, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said she supported President Barack Obama's decision to use military force against Syria and ask Congress for authorization.   

“Clinton supports the president’s effort to enlist the Congress in pursuing a strong and targeted response to the Assad regime’s horrific use of chemical weapons,” a Hillary Clinton adviser said in a statement, according to the Washington Post. 

Clinton, a presumptive 2016 presidential candidate, had not commented on the situation because she is mindful of her party's anti-war base, which helped propel Barack Obama to the nomination in 2008 over her because they disdained Clinton's prior support for the war in Iraq.
