SHOTLIST:POOL - AP CLIENTS ONLYWashington, DC - 4 September 20131. SOUNDBITE: (English) John Kerry, Secretary of State"It's no exaggeration to say that the world is not just watching to see what we decide here, but the world is really watching to see how we decide, frankly whether or not we can still make or achieve a single voice, speaking for the United States of America, the Congress and the president of the United States. So as we debate, the world is watching and the world is wondering not whether Assad's regime did this. I think that fact is now beyond question. The world is wondering whether the United States of America is going to consent through silence to stand aside while this kind of brutality is allowed to happen without consequence."2. SOUNDBITE: (English) Chuck Hagel, Secretary of Defense"A refusal to act would undermine the credibility of America's other security commitments, including the president's commitment to prevent Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon. The word of the United States must mean something. It is vital currency in foreign relations and international and allied commitments."STORYLINE:Taking President Barack Obama's case for military action against Syria to Capitol Hill for the second day in a row, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said "the world is watching" to see whether the U.S. Congress and executive branch and act decisively, with one voice."It's no exaggeration to say that the world is not just watching to see what we decide here, but the world is really watching to see how we decide, frankly whether or not we can still make or achieve a single voice," Kerry said to the House Foreign Relations Committee."The world is wondering whether the United States of America is going to consent through silence to stand aside while this kind of brutality is allowed to happen without consequence," he added.After Kerry spoke, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel made his case, sounding warnings about the potential scope of danger from failing to uphold international standards."A refusal to act would undermine the credibility of America's other security commitments, including the president's commitment to prevent Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon," Hagel said, adding, "the word of the United States must mean something. It is vital currency in foreign relations and international and allied commitments."As the secretaries spoke, several anti-war demonstrators seated behind them silently raised their red-colored hands.Before their public testimony at the House Foreign Affairs Committee, Kerry, Hagel and other senior administration officials provided classified briefings to the Senate Foreign Relations and Armed Services committees.President Obama, who is traveling in Stockholm Wednesday, was hoping to maintain aintain the momentum toward congressional approval that he has generated since Saturday, when he announced he would ask lawmakers to authorize what until then had appeared to be imminent military action against Syria.
