Kerry was echoed by Obama press secretary Jay Carney:
At WH briefing, @presssec says the evidence that chemical weapons used in Syria "undeniable" and "very little doubt" Assad regime culpable.

Will that be enough to satisfy those often skeptical of such claims?
Relax, people. I'm sure all those anti-war leftists will demand better proof that Syria is using WMD on its own people.

Dennis Miller and others are wondering why some of the same people who called on Bush to wait out multiple U.N. inspections in Iraq before taking action (after getting congressional approval) aren’t doing the same thing this time:
C'mon Barack, c'mon John…don't fall for that WMD macguffin in Syria until we get the Blue Helmets in there to poke around 17 times or so!

Let me get this straight. Bush went to UN 12 times AND got Congressional approval and Obama/Kerry are going to bypass UN/Congress in Syria?

So we’re just gonna go to war in Syria without Congressional authorization and the liberals are gonna forget that’s why the bashed Bush?
