I suggest YOU go back and listen to the speech. He DID NOT say that he had made a decision to attack Syria.<quoted text>
Go back and listen to Obama's speech from August 30, the actual speech and not the media spin. Obama clearly stated that he has made the decision to attack Syria.
"...the world has an obligation to make sure that we maintain the norm against the use of chemical weapons. Now, I have not made a final decision about various actions that might be taken to help enforce that norm. But as Ive already said, I have had my military and our team look at a wide range of options. We have consulted with allies. Weve consulted with Congress. Weve been in conversations with all the interested parties."
