Details of chemical weapons use in Syria not clear, says Obama

President Barack Obama said on Tuesday that the United States must gather all the facts on the use of chemical weapons in Syria before taking action. “What we now have is evidence that chemical weapons have been used inside of Syria, but we don’t know how they were used, when they were used, who used them; we don’t have chain of custody that establishes what exactly happened,” Obama said at the White House.

The Washington Post reported later Tuesday that Obama was weighing sending weapons to the Syrian opposition.
