Text of Obama’s Statement on Syria

by Rachel Baker on September 1, 2013

Text of President Barack Obama’s statement Saturday on Syria, as provided by the White House:

This attack is an assault on human dignity. It also presents a serious danger to our national security. It risks making a mockery of the global prohibition on the use of chemical weapons. It endangers our friends and our partners along Syria’s borders, including Israel, Jordan, Turkey, Lebanon and Iraq. It could lead to escalating use of chemical weapons, or their proliferation to terrorist groups who would do our people harm.
