Marco Rubio surprised some observers Wednesday when he voted in the Senate Foreign Relations Committee against a resolution authorizing President Obama to use U.S. military force in Syria. The surprise came not because Rubio had been beating the drum for war earlier — he hadn't — but because he has in the past used foreign policy statements to express deep concerns not only about the Syrian situation but also about Iran's nuclear ambitions.
