How the World Is Covering the Syrian Debate in the U.S.

Syria is not just leading headlines here in the United States. It's also getting coverage across the world.

Congressional action on whether to give President Obama the authority to strike Syria, in retaliation for allegedly using chemical weapons, lead coverage in much of the English-speaking world. However, a scan of the front pages Washington's Newseum provides shows that Latin America, Africa and other parts of the world panned the news surrounding Syria, for the most part.
