The crisis in Syria dominated President Obama’s visit to Sweden on Wednesday, as he continued to push for Congressional approval of his plan to launch a military strike against Syrian government forces, in response to their use of chemical weapons against their own people.. “My credibility is not on the line. The international community’s credibility is on the line,” Obama told a news conference in Stockholm. “And America and Congress’ credibility is on the line.” The President travels to the G-20 meeting in St. Petersburg on Thursday. Russian President Vladimir Putin has opposed the tentative plans for U.S. attack.
