For anyone wondering about Mr. Biden's quote on Syria talks ("We do know that it would be better if we can reach a political solution but we are prepared - we are prepared if that's not possible to have a military solution to this operation and to taking out Daesh.")...
A clarification from a Biden official:
The Vice President was making the point that even as we search for a political solution to the broader Syrian civil war, we are simultaneously pursuing a military solution against Daesh. There is no change in US policy.
