The White House notified lawmakers on Thursday that they have determined chemical weapons have been used.
The president "has said the use of chemical weapons would change his calculus and it has," said Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes.
"I thank the president for acknowledging that Syrians are using chemical weapons," Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., who urged the president to step up support of Syrian rebel groups. "Just to provide additional weapons to the Syrian National Army is not enough. We have got to change the equation on the battleground."
This gory inhuman criminal Assad tested the possibility of how cheaply effectively killed millions Syrian and other neighboring countries people within very short time!
