Sanford opposes intervention in Syria

BEAUFORT, S.C. (AP) - South Carolina Congressman Mark Sanford says he will vote against military intervention in Syria.

The Republican lawmaker says his constituents are weary of military and financial engagements in the Middle East. And Sanford says the Obama administration has not answered questions about why it's in America's interest and what the exit strategy would be.

Members of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee late Tuesday drafted a resolution permitting a 90-day military mission in Syria but prohibiting U.S. troops on the ground there.
