Ambassador Susan Rice said the use of chemical weapons in Syria was a serious threat to U.S. national security and raised threats to other countries in the region, including Israel. She provided an analysis of the chemical weapons attack that produced mass civilian casualties in Syria on August 21, 2013, the justification for the U.S. to take action, and the consequences for failing to respond to the use of chemical weapons. In her remarks she outlined the Obama administration’s reasoning for a decision to pursue limited military strikes, saying the U.S. and its allies had already “exhausted a host of other measures” to stop Syria’s use of chemical weapons. close
