WASHINGTON (AP) — The White House says President Barack Obama is getting ready to speak about Syria from the White House.
Obama has been considering a limited military strike against Syria, but he said Friday that he hadn't yet made a decision.
The strike would be in response to a chemical weapons attack the U.S. says Syrian President Bashar Assad's government carried out against Syrians. The U.S. says more than 1,400 Syrians were killed in that attack last week.
The White House is also briefing senators Saturday about Syria.
Obama's statement is set for 1:15 p.m. EDT Saturday.
