The State Department's deputy spokeswoman, Marie Harf, took questions after Kerry’s speech. Her main points were:Further information gathered from intelligence assessments will be shared with the public, although a time has not been specified.The regime has used chemical weapons in last year and has capability of using them. There is very little doubt that regime used them. Responsibility is firmly with the Assad regime.President Obama has a range of options and hasn’t made decisions on how to respond.The push for Geneva peace talks has not been not abandoned, and the durable path forward for the Syrian people is a political solution. There has been too much destruction of the affected area for a UN investigation to be credible... the US will continue with our own assessment.The US is open to new evidence from international partners.
