6. Tuesday, August 20th - Assad's attack with chemical weapons

during the night on his people was clearly a despicable, heinous act aimed at innocent people, but at the UN, our country and our president. Reports from first responders followed on Wednesday, August 21.

ABC news reported President Obama's statement last year - August 20, 2012

“We have been very clear to the Assad regime, but also to other players on the ground, that a red line for us is we start seeing a whole bunch of chemical weapons moving around or being utilized,” the president said a year ago last week. “That would change my calculus. That would change my equation.”
