Reactions To President Obama's Syria Speech

OPB | Sept. 11, 2013 12:06 p.m. | Updated: Sept. 19, 2013 3:28 p.m.

It’s been about three weeks since a chemical weapons attack in Syria killed 1400 civilians. The Obama administration says the intelligence is clear that the Bashad al-Assad government is responsible for the attack, and that some kind of military response is necessary. President Obama has said that the use of chemical weapons crosses a “red line” that requires action. 

Now, with Congress back in session and the Syria question at the top of their agenda, the President will give a primetime speech to the American public outlining his case for military action.

What are you hoping to hear from the president? Has he made a convincing case for military action? If not, how do you think the U.S. should respond to a chemical weapons attack?
