LONDON (Reuters) - U.S. President Barack Obama is set to overhaul Washington's approach to supporting Syrian rebel forces following this year's deeply troubled launch of a U.S. military training program, and will speak on the matter within hours, Defense Secretary Ash Carter said on Friday.

"I think you'll be hearing very shortly from him in that regard about the proposals that he has approved and that we are going to go forward with," Carter told a news briefing in London.
