The Obama administration is making its case for strikes against Syria, both to congressional critics and international skeptics.

FOX News Radio's Jared Halpern reports from Washington:

The U.S. Ambassador to the UN Samantha Power has been huddling with Security Council members reviewing a British resolution that condemns Syrian President Bashar al Assad for using chemical weapons.

The Russian delegation is complaining, and could veto any resolution targeting Syria.

White House officials, meantime, are briefing select members of Congress, but some lawmakers say any use of military force must be authorized before it's ordered by President Obama.
