Obama: Syria 'Atrocity' Must Have Response

President Obama said an "atrocity" with chemical weapons must not just be investigated but also confronted.

He said the United States can not and must not "turn a blind eye to what happened in Damascus."

He also urged members of Congress to consider that some things are more important than "partisan differences" as they consider the U.S. response to Syria.
