President Obama To Speak On Syria

President Obama is expected to speak from the Rose Garden about Syria at 1:15 p.m. ET on Saturday, but a White House official says his remarks will not be about imminent military operations.

Instead, the official, who asked not to be named, said the president will update the public about his decision on how to proceed.

The president has been considering a limited military strike against Syria, but he said Friday that he hadn't yet made a decision.


We'll livestream audio the president's statement here, and update with details as they become available.
