Senate Committee passes authorization to strike Syria --Senate panel approves resolution on Syria military strikes 04 Sep 2013 The U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee approved a resolution on Wednesday authorizing a limited U.S. military intervention in Syria, setting the stage for a debate in the full Senate next week on the use of military force. The committee voted 10-7 in favor of a compromise resolution that sets a 60-day limit on any engagement in Syria and bars the use of U.S. troops on the ground for combat operations. The full Senate is expected to vote on the resolution next week. The House of Representatives also must approve the measure.
