Obama's speech showed hesitation, confusion: Syrian minister
DAMASCUS (Reuters) - U.S. President Barack Obama's statement that he would seek Congress approval for a military strike on Syria was full of hesitation and confusion, Syrian Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal Mekdad said on Sunday.
"It is clear there was a sense of hesitation and disappointment in what was said by President Barack Obama yesterday. And it is also clear there was a sense of confusion as well," he told reporters in Damascus.
