Diplomats Respond to Violence in Syria

The Takeaway
As Syrian forces loyal to President Bashar al-Assad continue to bomb opposition strongholds, the international community considers its options.  On Tuesday, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton testified before Congress against President Assad making an argument that Assad would "fit into that category" of "war criminals." A meeting at the United Nations Human Rights Council in Geneva on Wednesday also signaled renewed diplomatic efforts in Syria,  but exactly how the international community might intervene remains to be seen.
