Bush neocon Dan Senor worries that Syria vote means that Congress won’t back Iran strike

Neoconservative Dan Senor, who worked to spin the Iraq war for the Bush administration, said on Sunday that he was worried that if Congress votes against military action in Syria then lawmakers may refuse to use military force against countries like Iran for the rest of President Barack Obama’s term.
During a panel discussion on ABC News, Senor pointed out that there were two camps within the Republican Party.
“One is sort of the Rand Paul camp: loosely defined, isolationists, doesn’t want to be engaged in the world no matter what Obama says, can’t be moved,” he explained. “There’s another camp… which has been supportive of engagement in the world, but they say they don’t trust Obama, they don’t have confidence in him, they don’t think he competent.”
