President speaks on possible chemical attack outside Damascus
SYRIA -- President Barack Obama is speaking out on the possible chemical weapons attack outside Damascus.
The *Syrian Opposition* is accusing Syria's president of killing more than 1300 people and injuring more than 5,000 in a chemical weapon attack.
President Obama says the use of chemical weapons in Syria would cross a "Red Line."
"We're moving through the U.N. to try to prompt better action from them. And we've called on the Syrian government to allow an investigation of the site, because U.N. inspectors are on the ground right now."
Syria denies launching any chemical attack.
Their ally, Russia, says the chemical weapons attack was staged -- to frame the Assad regime.
