WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama pledged on Wednesday to ramp up support for the moderate opposition in Syria's civil war, but U.S. officials said the effort was in its early stages and would need approval from Congress for any U.S. military role.
Obama told cadets at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point that it was the right decision not to put U.S. troops in "the middle of the increasingly sectarian war."
