Jindal: Obama must describe goal of Syrian strike

Posted: Updated:

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, considered a possible 2016 presidential candidate, hasn't taken a side on whether he supports President Barack Obama's request for a military strike against Syria.

Jindal, a Republican, said Tuesday that the Obama administration needs to more clearly lay out its case for why the Syrian government should face U.S. military action for a suspected chemical weapons attack against its own people.

Congress will consider whether to authorize the military strike.

Jindal, a former congressman, says the president needs to articulate what America's "clear national, strategic interests" are in an intervention in the Syrian conflict, what the goal in military action would be and how America would achieve its objectives.
