I wish the big "O" would keep his nose OUT of Syria

Obama Considering "Limited, Narrow" Syria Action

President Barack Obama said Friday he hasn't made a final decision about a military strike against Syria, but said he's considering a "limited, narrow" action in response to a chemical weapons attack that he says Syria's regime carried out last week. The president said the attack was a challenge to the world and threatens U.S. national security. Obama's comment came after Secretary of State John Kerry said that the U.S. government has "high confidence" that Syria's regime launched a chemical attack that killed 1,429 Syrians, including 426 children, in a Damascus suburb. He spoke of Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad as a "thug and a murderer" and described the attack on Syrian civilians as a "crime against humanity." The White House released an intelligence report as Kerry spoke that cited a "large body of independent sources" in determining that the Syrian regime used chemical weapons in the attack. Meanwhile, U.N. inspectors finished collecting samples and evidence to determine whether chemical weapons were used in the Aug. 21 attack and will be leaving Syria on Saturday, a spokesman said.   WATCH VIDEO
