(Weekly Standard) In an interview with PBS, President Obama says no decision has yet been made on Syria:

“I have not made a decision,” said Obama. “I have gotten options from our military. I had extensive discussions with my national security team.”

The president went on to say that “terrible things have been happening in Syria for quite some time” and that the “Assad regime there has been killing its own people.”

Obama says that though he’s “called for Assad to leave,” he’s “concluded is that direct military engagement, involvement in the civil war in Syria would not help the situation on the ground. So we’ve been very restrained. Although diplomatically we’ve been very active.”
