    White House: 'No pressure' to alter Syria policy after McCain meets with rebels

    The White House denied Tuesday that a visit to Syria by Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) over the weekend puts any more pressure on the Obama administration to take a more forceful role in the 26-month civil war.

    “I don't believe that his trip puts more pressure on us,” White House communications director Jennifer Palmieri told MSNBC. “All of the options … are what the administration is considering in terms of how we deal with Syria."

    Palmieri said the White House and the State Department had gotten a head's up from McCain before his trip.

    Looks like the White House knew that McCain was going to sneak into Syria, and it looks like the White House isnt gonna do anything new. McCain's little trip seemed to have failed.
