TIDINGS WATCH! Obama to "act very deliberately" on Syria!
But tidings out of the east and out of the north shall trouble him: therefore he shall go forth with great fury to destroy, and utterly to make away many. Daniel 11:44
The Obama White House is vowing to "act very deliberately" in response to recent claims of chemical weapons attacks against Syrian rebel forces.
President Obama directed U.S. intelligence agencies to explore the circumstances surrounding the alleged chemical attacks against anti-government positions in and around the Syrian capital of Damascus, according to a White House official.
During a meeting of the administration's national security team at the White House on Saturday, the president ordered the agencies to begin to gather "facts and evidence so that we can determine what occurred in Syria."
"Once we ascertain the facts, the president will make an informed decision about how to respond . . . and we are going to act very deliberately," the official said on Saturday, shortly after the White House meeting.
