CHARLESTON - Senator Joe Manchin is calling off his events in West Virginia this week to return to Washington for briefings on the situation in Syria. President Barack Obama announced Saturday that he will seek congressional approval for military action against the Assad regime for its use of chemical weapons that killed hundreds.  Manchin said in a statement that a decision to authorize military force is one of the most difficult ones a country can make, and he wants to make sure he has all the information available before the Senate begins debate.
