WASHINGTON, D.C. - Leaders of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee said Tuesday they reached an agreement on a draft resolution to use military force in Syria, setting a 60-day deadline, with one 30-day extension possible for the intervention. It would also bar the involvement of ground forces in the conflict.
The draft could be voted on by the panel on Wednesday. If approved, it would be sent to the full Senate for a vote once members return from recess on Sept. 9.
Confronting those not in favor of an attack on Syria, Secretary of State John Kerry said Tuesday that the world is watching and wants to know whether the United States will "rise to this moment and make a difference."
