Obama Says He’s Not Made Final Decision On Syria

Speaking during a photo op with the leaders of Estonia, Latvia and Lithunia today, President Obama said he has not made a final decision on launching a military strike on Syria.

But Obama echoed the case made earlier by Secretary of State John Kerry that chemical weapons in Syria threaten U.S. national security interests and that the use of chemical weapons is the “kind of offense that is a challenge to the world.”

Obama said he is considering a “limited narrow act.”
