ABC, CBS, NBC Break In with Pres. Obama Comments on Syria

With cameras clicking and flashbulbs popping, and with the leaders of Lithuania, Estonia and Latvia on either side of him, Pres. Obama spoke about the situation in Syria. Obama’s remarks were recorded by the pool and fed out around 2:45pmET. They followed Secy. of State John Kerry‘s remarks earlier with results from an unclassified U.S. investigation into a chemical weapons attack in Syria last week. The president:

“We are looking at the possibility of a limited, narrow act that would help make sure that not only Syria, but others around the world, understand that the international community cares about maintaining this chemical weapons ban. Again, I repeat, we’re not considering any open-ended commitment. We’re not considering any boots on the ground approach.”

Scott Pelley anchored a special report on CBS along with Pentagon correspondent David MartinDavid Muir anchored on ABC along with Martha Raddatz. And on NBC Lester Holt along with Andrea Mitchell reported on the President’s remarks. Christiane Amanpour who splits time on CNN and ABC, was part of the special report on CNN.
