Lawmakers bash Obama administration's 'delusional' Syria policy

Obama waves after delivering a speech at Palais des Beaux-Arts in BrusselsBy Patricia Zengerle WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. lawmakers lashed out at the Obama administration’s handling of Syria’s civil war on Wednesday, demanding a stronger American response to the conflict and better communication from the White House about its plans. Senator Robert Menendez, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, expressed deep frustration after Anne Patterson, the assistant secretary of state for Near Eastern affairs, declined to answer a question about strategy in a public setting.
