Obama: Syria Military Intervention Not Needed To Resolve Conflict

Syrian Uprising

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama says it is important to resolve the ongoing conflict in Syria without outside military intervention. Obama says not every situation allows for the type of military action the U.S. and allies took in Libya, which led to the removal of Moammar Gadhafi last year. The president says a negotiated solution in Syria is possible.
