Diplomatic efforts intensify on corralling Syrian chemical arms

US officials say that as many as 100 Americans are under active surveillance in the US as suspected terrorists, and that just as many have left the US to fight with al Qaeda-linked groups overseas, including about a dozen fighting with the Al Nusrah Front in Syria and some 50 who have gone to Somalia to fight with Shabaab. Two members of the 9/11 Commission called for a revision of US counterterrorism policy and the release of more of the documents found at Osama bin Laden's compound; they said al Qaeda and its affiliates are now active in "some 16 different theaters of operation," twice as many as five years ago.

How the Syria solution developed: The inside story

President Obama addressed the nation on Syria, saying that as the Assad regime was to blame for the Aug. 21 chemical weapons attack, the US has planned a targeted strike with the objective of deterring the use of chemical weapons and degrading Assad's capabilities. He said he has asked Congress to postpone consideration of the planned strike, however, while the US pursues a diplomatic path with the international community to push the regime to give up its chemical weapons. The Defense Department urged China to support the planned Syrian strike as a measure to deter North Korea from using its chemical weapons arsenal. The US, the UK, and France are drafting language for a UN resolution that will assure Syria's compliance with the proposed surrender of its chemical weapons.
