Obama: No rush to judgment on Syria

April 30, 2013 at 10:52 AM

WASHINGTON, April 30 (UPI) -- U.S. President Barack Obama said Tuesday the United States has not been standing by idly as the Syrian situation unfolded.

At a White House news conference, Obama said the United States has worked to strengthen the opposition and worked with allies to help Bashar Assad to be forced out of office.

Obama said use of chemical weapons is a "game changer" for not just the United States but the international community as well. He said though there's evidence chemical weapons were used, there remain questions about who was responsible.

He said he will not "rush to judgment."
