House Speaker Boehner says he supports President Obama on Syria

WASHINGTON

The Ohio Republican says the use of chemical weapons must be responded to. He says only the United States has the capability and the capacity to stop Syrian President Bashar Assad and warn others around the world that such actions will not be tolerated.

Said Boehner: "This is something that the United States as a country needs to do."

He spoke at the White House Tuesday after he and other congressional leaders met with Obama.
