In the Senate, Syria Vote Delayed

Senate postpones vote on Syria to give Obama more time.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., makes his way to the floor of the Senate to introduce a resolution to authorize military action to support President Barack Obama's request for a strike against Syria, at the Capitol in Washington, Friday, Sept. 6, 2013.

"It would be a positive for Assad to sign on, but let's remember there are countries that have signed it and then violated it. That is no guarantee," says Wayne White, a policy expert with the Washington D.C.-based Middle East Policy Council.
