Stop me if you've heard this before... Obama plans to proceed with military action against Syria without authorization the UN Security Council.

In blunt terms, department spokeswoman Marie Harf said last-ditch efforts to win support for an anti-Assad resolution at the U.N. were unsuccessful, and the U.S. would proceed anyway.

"We see no avenue forward given continued Russian opposition to any meaningful council action on Syria," she said. "Therefore, the United States will continue its consultations and will take appropriate actions to respond in the days ahead."
For those upset by the Fox News source, she was quoted in today's US State Department press briefing.
