URGENT - Syria-Obama-Postpone-Vote
(CNN) -- President Barack Obama said Tuesday night that he has asked leaders in Congress "to postpone a vote to authorize the use of force" in Syria while diplomatic efforts to address the crisis continue. "It's too early to tell whether this offer will succeed, and any agreement must verify that the Assad regime keeps its commitments," Obama said. "But this initiative has the potential to remove the threat of chemical weapons without the use of force."
