Kerry Lays Groundwork for Attack on Syria

Secretary of State John Kerry said the Syrian government's use of chemical weapons against civilians was a "moral obscenity," delivering the clearest indication yet that the Obama administration is preparing to attack President Bashar al-Assad's regime, the Wall Street Journal reports.

Said Kerry: "Make no mistake: President Obama believes there must be accountability for those who would use the world's most heinous weapons against the world's most vulnerable people."

New York Times: "Kerry's remarks, in a prepared statement he read at the State Department, reinforced the administration's toughening stance on the Syria conflict, which is now well into its third year, and he suggested it was moving closer to a military response in consultation with America's allies."
