President Barack Obama has ordered his national security team to prepare a declassified report for public release before any military strike in Syria commences, CBS News reported on Monday.

Obama made the request at a Saturday White House meeting of his national security team [2], in which according to CBS, there was a consensus opinion about the need to respond military to alleged chemical weapons use [3] by the regime of Syrian President Bashar Assad last week.
