A nonprofit political advocacy group which emanated from President Barack Obama's re-election campaign says hackers altered the links contained in tweets sent under his name.
CLEVELAND - Souad Kaddah and her two friends found a comfortable spot Tuesday in the Pasha Café.
The restaurant's Middle East clientele poured in at lunchtime for a taste of owner Yasin Kurdi's latest creation. They also found Syria to be a topic on most everyone's mind.
"It's a slow crowd right now, but at night there will be over 100 people in here," Kurdi said.Kurdi, a transplant from Jordan, stirred a pot of rice awaiting his freshly baked chicken.
Kaddah is a survivor of war in her native Lebanon. Seeing the bombings in 2006 at the age of 12, she knows first-hand the terror of death and destruction through war tearing families and friends apart.
"Being there and seeing the view, watching things blow up, people die. Imagine people there now in Syria watching this happen to their own family, their friends. It's heartbreaking," Kaddah said.
For Kurdi, whom grew up Kurdish, he's not sure who is to blame there. He's said he's distrustful of so many polarizing media reports on the international cable television stations.
Kurdi doesn't understand the sudden interest to take sides for either Russia or the United States. Both, Kurdi says, are trying to out arm wrestle each other without certain facts.
Kurdi said he believes who is at fault for the chemical attack may never be answered.
"Women and children, old people, we are concerned about everybody there. But, if you are concerned for real about the Syrian people, you should work and stop that war," Kurdi said.
After days of intense negotiations, the United States and Russia reached agreement Saturday on a framework to secure and destroy Syria's chemical weapons by mid-2014 and impose U.N. penalties if the Assad government fails to comply.
Russian President Vladimir Putin is no fan of the idea of American exceptionalism. He suggests that God isn't either.
One day after his speech on Syria, local political science students gave President Barack Obama a "B" for his handling of the situation.
President Barack Obama wasn't just seeking Americans' support for military action in Syria. He also was seeking their trust.
One Cleveland-area Syrian-American paid extra close attention to President Obama's speech on Syria Tuesday as his family struggles to survive in the country.
President Barack Obama said in a nationally televised address Tuesday night that recent diplomatic steps offer "the potential to remove the threat of chemical weapons" inside Syria without the use of force.
Syria's foreign minister says President Bashar Assad's regime will declare its chemical weapons arsenal and sign the chemical weapons convention.
In advance of a national address Tuesday by the president, the White House ramped up its efforts Monday to convince Congress and the American people that an air strike on Syria is a necessary response.
