Obama doubts Syrian regime

President Obama said Wednesday that the United States was investigating claims that chemical weapons had been used in Syria the day before and that he was ‘‘deeply skeptical’’ of the Syrian government’s assertion that the insurgency had deployed such weapons.

The president’s remarks were strong in tone and suggested that if Washington finds evidence that such weapons had been used he would hold the Syrian government responsible.
