Rubio joins Lieberman and other Senators in calling for resolution condemning Syria's leader


One of the biggest stories in the world this year has been the advent of the Arab Spring, the explosion in the Middle East of people clamoring for political reform, beginning in Tunisia and Egypt, which ended with relatively little violence before those governments were upended, and has spread to Libya and Syria, where there has been a much harsher reaction from those leaders.

Wednesday in Washington, a bipartisan group of 16 U.S. Senators held a news conference where they called for resolution condemning Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad, calling for sanctions against him and asking President Obama to be more vocal about the Syria crisis.

Among those lawmakers calling on the President to ask was Florida Senator Marco Rubio.
