McGovern to Obama: Withdraw Syria Request

Massachusetts Congressman Jim McGovern is urging President Obama to withdraw his request for Congress to authorize an attack on Syria.  McGovern made the remark on CNN’s State of the Union.  He says the White House seems incapable of thinking outside the box and looking at options other than bombing or not-bombing.  Obama plans to address the nation on the Syrian crisis Tuesday night.
