Menendez: After testimony, members will support Syria strike


The Obama administration is sending its heavy-hitters to try and persuade the Senate Foreign Relations Committee that strikes are necessary in Syria to “punish” Bashar al-Assad for allegedly using chemical weapons. Andrea Mitchell discusses the meeting with NBC White House Correspondent Peter Alexander and NBC Capitol Hill Correspondent Kelly O’Donnell. The committee’s chairman, Sen. Bob Menendez, D-NJ, tells Andrea Mitchell that a resolution can be drafted to assuage some concerns as well as sending a limited, targeted strike.
