(WDAY TV) -- There has been no decision made yet on military action against Syria.

But President Obama says he's considering a limited and narrow action in response to a chemical weapons attack that he says Syria's government carried out last week.

The President says it is the world's obligation to make sure chemical weapons are not used against innocent civilians.

Senator Al Franken shares similar thoughts.

Sen. Al Franken says, "The president has the right to strike. If we put boots on the ground, which were not going to do, and were there over a certain period of time, than he has to get permission from congress."
