Obama weighs options while new poll says 60 percent of Americans say no to action in Middle East

The White House said Sunday it had "very little doubt" that the Syrian government was responsible for a chemical assault that killed hundreds of civilians, as U.N. inspectors prepared to access the site of the attack.

Syrian state television reported that the regime of Bashar al-Assad has now assented to international experts going to the Damascus suburb purported to have been hit by deadly nerve gas. A U.N. fact-finding visit is slated for Monday.

But a senior Obama administration official treated the Syrian decision with skepticism, saying it was "too late to be credible."

"If the Syrian government had nothing to hide and wanted to prove to the world that it had not used chemical weapons in this incident, it would have ceased its attacks on the area and granted immediate access to the UN - five days ago," the official said on condition of anonymity.
