A very serious story and President Obama may soon have to act.
Mike Rogers features the Intel committee in the house.
His counterpart over the senate Dianne Feinstein both say that based on the briefings they received.
Very high probability that Syria's regime did indeed use weapons of mass destruction -- that has been called a red line issue.
By President Obama who warned of Syria's dictator Bashar Al Assad that he should not cross that.
-- also senator Feinstein a strong words to on this I'm told that the White House has been briefed.
And the White House has to make some decisions in this I think the days are becoming more desperate.

Not 100% certain bill but senator Feinstein says lawmakers have seen that same intelligence the White House -- seen and congressman Rogers the chairman.

And if a final verification about chemical weapons use is made congressman Rogers says.
The United States is morally obligated to take out Syria's weapons delivery systems and he suggested.
In that interview a limited military strike.

The Asad regime has lost all credibility in the eyes of the world but -- made crystal clear.
The president's position about chemical use chemical weapon used in Syria of being a red line.
Has not changed.
The president was clear when he said that -- aside and those under his command make the mistake of using chemical weapons or fail to meet their obligations to secure them.
Then there will be consequences and they will be held accountable.
