Senators backing Syria strike got more defense cash than skeptics

Key US senators backing military action against Syria received on average 83 percent more campaign cash from the defense industry than those who voted against the strike, the US technology magazine Wired reported Thursday.

The 10 members of the US Senate Foreign Relations Committee who voted Wednesday to authorize a punitive strike against Syrian government targets over an apparent chemical weapons attack received an average of $72,850 from defense contractors over a five-year span compared to an average of $39,770 received by the seven members who voted no, Wired reported.
