“U.S. to defend western-trained ‎Syria forces” Reply


CBS NEWS

WASHINGTON —The use of airstrikes has been authorized by President Obama in order to defend a U.S. trained force of Syrian rebels if it comes under attack from other military forces, including the Bashar Assad regime, U.S. officials said.

The Wall Street Journal reported Sunday that U.S. officials had made the decision after months of debating the role of the U.S. military in relation to its allies in theSyrian crisis. The officials had been careful about any such confrontation because of the risk of bringing the American military into conflict with Assad’s forces. MORE

“Congress Dawdles as Puerto Rico Hurtles Towards Financial Ruin”


POLITICO

With Puerto Rico spiraling toward financial disaster, spokesman Josh Earnest stood in front of cameras yesterday and reiterated the White House’s support for an idea to help the troubled island: Let its public corporations to go through a structured bankruptcy, the same way they can in the 50 states.

In an April campaign stop, Jeb Bush said much the same thing: “Puerto Rico should be given the same rights as the states.”

With both Obama and Bush behind the same plan, you might expect it to have decent odds on Capitol Hill. You’d be wrong. Puerto Rico’s non-voting delegate, Pedro Pierluisi, introduced such a bill in the last Congress, but it never even received a vote in committee.
