President Barack Obama warned Wednesday that the international community's credibility — though not his — is at risk if there's no response to the use of chemical weapons in Syria, though he expects Congress to agree to take military action against Bashar Assad's regime.

"My credibility is not on the line. The international community's credibility is on the line," Obama said at a press conference in Stockholm, Sweden. "And America and Congress's credibility is on the line."
