BREAKING: The White House has released a letter sent to congressional leaders Thursday, saying it has evidence the Syrian President Bashar al-Assad used chemical weapons.
“Our intelligence community does assess with varying degrees of confidence that the Syrian regime has used chemical weapons on a small scale in Syria, specifically the agent sarin,” the letter reads.
President Obama has said in the past that the use of chemical weapons by the Syrian regime would be a ‘red line’ that could trigger a new phase of intervention in the civil war, which has been underway for two years.
