Barack Obama

President Obama defends his actions on Syria and his inaction on evidence the Syrian regime used chemical weapons.

FOX News Radio's Mike Majchrowitz reports from the White House:

Facing mounting calls for greater U.S. involvement in Syria, President Obama defended his administration's actions to date.

(President Obama) "This is not a situation in which we've been simply bystanders to what's been happening."

The President saying the U.S. rallied world opinion, supports the opposition and has delivered tons of non-lethal aid.

As for evidence Syria likely used chemical weapons, the President says he can't unilaterally declare the regime crossed his 'red line', saying an international consensus is needed.

(President Obama) "What's happening in Syria is a blemish on the international community generally."

The President warning a rush to judgement could divide the world community.

At the White House, Mike Majchrowitz, FOX News Radio.
