Kerry: Syrian Videos Make Case for Military Action

kerrysectPARIS (AP) — Secretary of State John Kerry says the Obama administration is distributing videos showing a chemical weapons attack in Syria to help convince Americans and Congress that a military intervention against the Syrian government is needed.

Kerry said Sunday in Paris that the videos make clear that the attack is not something Americans can ignore. He says it’s important for the American people to see and “connect” to this.

Kerry is in Europe making the case for military intervention in Syria and also discussing Middle East peace negotiations.

The United States accused Syrian President Bashar Assad’s government of using chemical weapons in an Aug. 21 assault that killed more than 1,400 people. U.S. officials have released videos showing victims, including children, exhibiting what appear to be symptoms of nerve gas poisoning.
