American officials, who declined to be identified, said the target of the attack was Abu Ghadiya, the leader of a network that helps to smuggle foreign fighters from Syria into Iraq. Kim Ghattas reports from Washington.

 

The White House and the State Department have refused so far to comment publicly about the military strike. But they've also not denied the reports. Military officials in Washington speaking on condition of anonymity said the operation was successful, suggesting Abu Ghadiya had been killed. U. S. troops have been taking a more aggressive approach to tackling militants, launching cross-border attacks into Pakistan, for example, from Afghanistan. But the attack across the border into Syria is unlikely to be more than a one-off.

一个州两个参议员没错,但是这里是头衔不用所以不用加冠词or不定冠词 IMHO

 

1. 表示头衔、职务、职称、身份等的名词,在句中作表语、宾(主)补时,该名词常不与冠词连用。如:

  Lincoln became President of the United States. 林肯成为美国总统。

  Li Ming was made monitor of our class. 李明被选为我们班的班长。

 

以上摘自新浪教育~
