GOP Pushing To Withdraw Ambassador From Syria

House Foreign Affairs Chairwoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL) became the latest Republican hawk to press the Obama administration to withdraw its ambassador from Syria in light of a brutal crackdown by authorities on protesters throughout the country. Ros-Lehtinen joins other prominent GOP hawks such as Sen. Jon Kyl (R-AZ). In 2009, President Barack Obama returned a top envoy to Damascus for the first time in four years.
