Updated: Thursday, September 12 2013, 03:32 PM CDT
Traces of sarin gas have been found in soil and clothing taken from a patient treated near the site of an alleged chemical weapons attack outside Syria's capital.
British military scientists have been "examining samples" from the August 21 st Attack near Damascus.
More than 1400 people killed.
Who is to blame, and what the world should do about it, looms large over the G-20 gathering of world leaders in Russia.
Calls for intervention in Syria intensified after the attack.
President Obama has been at the forefront of calls for a military response.
The use of chemical weapons in Syria is not only a tragedy but also a violation of international law that must be addressed.
Right now the White House does not have the votes it needs for a strike authorization.
Senior officials say if congress doesn't authorize a strike the president will not go forward.
