(AURN) -- New polls show a majority of Americans opposed a U.S. military response to an alleged chemical attack on civilians in Syria.   The feeling was evident for U.S. Senator John Mccain -- who supports such action -- during a townhall meeting with constituents in Tucson, AZ last night.

Meantime, an increasing number of Black lawmakers are voicing opposition to President Obama's war plans in Syria, prompting the chairwoman of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) to asked members to "limit public comment" on the issue until they are briefed by senior administration officials.

According to 'The Cable' a  congressional aide to a CBC member called the request "eyebrow-raising." but said the request was designed to quiet dissent while shoring up support for President Obama's Syria strategy.

Meantime, Congresswoman Barbara Lee  of California (left) told reporters she and other CBC members will keep and open mind about the Syrian issue and "will stay in constant briefings, as long as it takes.''
