Vice President Biden said Tuesday that there is â€śno doubtâ€ť that the Syrian regime used chemical weapons in an attack on innocent civilians in Syria.
â€śThere is no doubt who is responsible for this heinous use of chemical weapons, the Syrian regime,â€ť Biden said in an afternoon speech to the American Legion National Convention in Houston.
Biden added, â€śChemical weapons have been used. Everyone acknowledges their use. No one doubts that innocent men, women and children have been the victims of chemical weapons attacks in Syria.â€ť
Biden added that he and President Obama believe those who use chemical weapons â€śmust be held accountable.â€ť
"We know the Syrian regime is the only ones who have the weapons. They've used chemical weapons multiple times in the past, they have the means to deliver those weapons, and they're determined to wipe out the places attacked by the chemical weapons," he said.
