The Senate Committee bill authorizes military action against Syria but not to exceed 90 days and no deployment of troops.

Great... we'll just commit a little act of war.

Mr. McCain had insisted the resolution state that U.S. policy is to “change the momentum’’ in the war. An amendment which added that language, sponsored by Mr. McCain and Sen. Chris Coons (D., Del.), also called for an increase in U.S. efforts to provide lethal and non-lethal support for vetted elements of the Syrian rebel opposition.

This Senate bill primarily seeks to save Barry’s hide by not obviously going afoul of the Constitution. He’ll negligently let his war get out of hand, nonetheless, as desired. The thought is at least he won’t be impeachable for his jumping in or letting it “go overtime”, as it surely will.
