Pres. Obama Gives Interviews Ahead of Address to the Nation on Syria

President Obama is sitting down with anchors from six networks Monday as he pushes his case for strikes on Syria. ABC’s Diane Sawyer, CBS’s Scott Pelley, NBC’s Brian Williams, PBS’s Gwen Ifill, Fox News Channel’s Chris Wallace, and CNN’s Wolf Blitzer will interview the president Monday afternoon. The Fox and CNN interviews are set to air in the 6pmET hour of “Special Report” and “The Situation Room,” respectively. President Obama is also planning to address the urgency of targeted strikes in a televised speech Tuesday.

Also today, CNN’s Jake Tapper got a hold of the videos that the Obama administration is showing lawmakers to prove their case for striking Syrian weapons sites. The videos, very graphic in nature, show the aftermath of a chemical attack, but still do not prove who was behind the Aug. 21 attack.
