U.S. Democratic Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia opposed a White House-backed resolution that would provide congressional authorization of U.S. military strikes against Syria. "A military strike against Syria at this time is the wrong course of action," Manchin said in a statement. "We must exhaust all diplomatic options and have a comprehensive plan for international involvement before we act."
