The White House said Thursday that military forces loyal to Syrian President Bashar Assad probably used chemical weapons on a "small scale," reigniting the debate over what role the U.S. should play in trying to topple the regime.
Mr. Rodriguez said the assessment that chemical weapons may have been used was "based in part on physiological samples."
"Our intelligence community does assess with varying degrees of confidence that the Syrian regime has used chemical weapons on a small scale in Syria, specifically the chemical agent sarin," Miguel E. Rodriguez, director of the White House Office of Legislative Affairs, said in the letter.
