President Obama said Thursday that the United States was “looking at all options” in Syria, hours after Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said the administration was reconsidering its opposition to arming rebels in the country.
“As we’ve seen evidence of further bloodshed, potential use of chemical weapons … what I’ve said is we’re going to look at all options,” Obama said at a press conference in Mexico City.
But the president said the administration wanted “to evaluate and make sure every step we take advances the day [Syrian President Bashar] Assad is gone” while ensuring a stable transition of power.
“We want to make sure we look before we leap and that what we do is actually helpful to the situation,” Obama said.
