President Barack Obama
With the majority of Americans – and many in the Bay Area – against the use of force in Syria, President Obama asked them Tuesday evening to have confidence in his judgment as commander in chief if he launches a strike despite their opposition.
President Obama said in a nationally televised address Tuesday evening that recent diplomatic steps offer “the potential to remove the threat of chemical weapons” inside Syria without the use of force, but he also insisted the U.S. military will keep the pressure on and be ready to respond” if other measures fail.
