UPDATE

  • *OBAMA SAYS USERS OF CHEMCIAL WEAPONS MUST BE HELD TO ACCOUNT
  • *OBAMA SAYS `MENACE' OF SYRIA MUST BE CONFRONTED
  • *OBAMA SAYS U.S. MUST TAKE MILITARY ACTION AGAINST SYRIA
  • *OBAMA SAYS HE WILL SEEK AUTHORIZATION FROM CONGRESS ON SYRIA

Via Bloomberg,

U.S. must take action against Syrian “menace,” Congress will debate, vote on authorization of military strike, President Obama says at White House.
U.S. will be stronger if Congress approves steps; “We should have this debate,” Obama says
* Regimes that use chemical weapons must be held to account
* “Atrocity” committed with chemical weapons “must be confronted”
* Reiterates no ground troops in Syria

 

 

 

While Andrea Mitchell reports that the President will not be announcing airstrikes from the Rose Garden at 115ET, his press briefing this afternoon will update the American people on his decisions about how to proceed... so with no report due from the UN on Syrian chemical arms until lab tests are done, we wait with bated breath for Obama's next steps (but not on the ground...)
