US Senate unanimously passes defense spending bill
It would authorize an increase of up to 1,000 Marine Corps personnel assigned to provide security at U.S. embassies and other facilities, a response to the deadly attack in Benghazi,
Libya that killed the U.S. ambassador and three others. The bill also requires the Pentagon to submit reports on the resources needed for its planned "pivot" to the Asia-Pacific
region; possible military options in Syria, and the risks involved with reducing U.S. forces in Afghanistan.
