Obama convening White House meeting on Syria
WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama is meeting Saturday morning with his national security team to discuss possible next steps in Syria.
The meeting comes amid reports that Syria's government has again used deadly chemical weapons. Top national security officials met earlier this week at the White House while Obama was traveling on an education-focused bus tour through New York and Pennsylvania.
The White House says the U.S. is still seeking confirmation that Syria used chemical weapons. Officials say once the facts are clear, Obama will make a decision about how to respond.
The U.S. is considering a range of options, though Obama has ruled out putting American forces on the ground in Syria.
