In his interview with FOX News SundaySecretary Kerry said, "The rationale for the military response the President has requested is as powerful today and will be as powerful if not more powerful each day. The fact is that yesterday we have now learned that hair and blood samples that have come to us from east Damascus from individuals who were engaged as first responders in east Damascus, I can report to you today they have tested positive for signatures of sarin. So this case is going to build stronger and stronger, and the President believes that the United States of America, for a decision like this, is stronger when you have the time to be able to have the support of the United States Congress and obviously the support of the American people through them."
