US Congress to address Syria military attack on September 9
The US House of Representatives will consider a measure on military action against Syria the week of Sept. 9, House Speaker John Boehner and other Republican leaders said in a statement after President Barack Obama announced the Congress was to decide on the strike on Syria.
"In consultation with the president, we expect the House to consider a measure the week of September 9th. This provides the president time to make his case to Congress and the American people," the statement said.
