    "We don’t know how they were used, when they were used, who used them -- we don’t have a chain of custody that establishes what exactly happened. I’ve got to make sure I’ve got the facts." - President Barack Obama, on intelligence reports that Syrian President Bashar Assad used chemical weapons against the opposition. Obama defended his policy toward Syria and promised to close the Gunatanamo Bay detention facility in a question-and-answer session held earlier today, Yahoo reports. He also called openly-gay athelete Jason Collins "a terrific young man" and called out critics who feel he needs to make Congress act, saying, "That's their job."

Of the more than 2,700 victims of the attack, only 1,635 have been identified.
