WASHINGTON (AP) — Sen. John McCain says he doesn't support the latest Senate resolution to authorize military force against Syria.
McCain is an outspoken advocate of intervention against Syrian President Bashar Assad's regime and wants more than cruise missile strikes and other limited action.
The Arizona Republican threatened earlier this week to vote against a White House draft resolution unless President Barack Obama promised greater support to Syria's rebels. McCain then came out in favor after meeting Obama at the White House.
He now opposes a resolution crafted by fellow Republican Sens. Bob Menendez of New Jersey and Bob Corker of Tennessee. It puts a 90-day limit on action and says no American troops can be sent into Syria.
Asked if he supported it, McCain said, "In its current form, I do not."
