Obama briefs Boehner on Syria
The Associated Press
A spokesman for Boehner, Brendan Buck, said in a brief statement on Thursday that the speaker questioned the president about issues he raised in a letter on Wednesday.
Among Boehner's concerns are the legal justification for any military strike, the overall policy and precedent and the objective.
Buck said only Obama can answer those questions, and it was clear that additional conversations, consultation with Congress and communication with the nation were necessary.
