President Obama Speaks On Syria LIVE

  • "I will seek authorization from Congress"
  • "We must acknowledge the cost of doing nothing... What message do we send if we let a dictator gas hundreds of children?"
  • "We should have this debate because the issues are too big for business as usual"
  • Obama says vote will occur when Congress comes back -- which means it won't take place until Sept 9 at least.
  • "I know well we are weary of war."
  • "We are the United States of America. We cannot, and must not, turn a blind eye to what happened in Damascus"
  • "We lead with the belief that right makes might, not the other way around."
  • "I wasn't elected to avoid hard decisions and neither were members of congress."
