Kerry Threatens Syria Over Chemical Weapons

Says the administration is convinced Assad gassed his own people

The Obama administration has plenty of evidence that  Syria used chemical weapons against its own people, and President Obama is determined to hold Syrian President Bashar al-Assad accountable for a "moral obscenity," Secretary of State John F. Kerry said Monday

"The president will be making an informed decision about how to respond," Kerry said in brief remarks to reporters at the State Department. "But make no mistake, President Obama believes there must be accountability for those who would use the world's most heinous weapons."
