Just before the White House released an intelligence report asserting that nerve gas was used to kill more than 14100 an hour later though the president walking back carries strong statement.
Then the next day President Obama spoke out from the rose garden and then said for the first time that he would seek congressional approval for military action.
He moved to Sundays.

Into Syria and he's bringing out the attack dog Stephanie Cutter deputy.
Campaign manager he's essentially calling this team back and to not try and get votes from congressman essentially to shame them into issue.
Voting for this we saw this with president Obama's message this morning was shifting blame for the Red Line.
To the rest of the world and saying that -- the ball is essential in congress' court and that's exactly what the old campaign team is going to do.
Anita -- Stephanie -- David Axelrod Robert Gibbs David -- they've all moved on from the White House they're back there yesterday -- what do you think what's here is Smart strategy is is is to a necessary strategy or.

He is now asking congress to do something he originally was not gonna do there are so many mixed messages on this.
When he went into Libya he invoked the war powers resolution.
And just did and then inform congress within 48 hours as a war powers resolution calls for an -- a situation where.
He's trying to get some Republicans and some Democrats and a bunch of odd bedfellows here you've got Republicans.

But he really has to sit down.
Make its own case to the American people on his alone in the Oval Office in a presidential -- before anyone can Newport with -- serious message on this -- don't -- hear from this campaign advisors wanna hear from the president.
-- one would you expect that.
I would think he would do it before there's some kind of a strike if he even gets that far congress will actually agree a lot of the pundits are saying -- -- probably agree.
But you know my concern is.
I'm against this I was against going into Iraq were the conservatives are supported Iraq.
But don't support this why the double standard.
Why are we doing these foreign wars against connection with the -- the United States in the public doesn't want -- our allies don't want that it cost a lot of money and what do we accomplish as general Mac and and he -- the two day strike.
