After failing to reach a consensus on taking military action in Syria at the G20 Summit, President Barack Obama announced Friday that he will take his case directly to the American people next week.

In a press conference at the conclusion of the G20 Summit in St. Petersburg, Russia, Obama argued that the Syrian government's alleged use of chemical weapons is a "threat to global peace and security."
