Deputy Spokesperson Marie Harf delivered the regular State Department briefing. In response to questions from reporters she spoke about Secretary of State John Kerry’s telephone conversation with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov that day on the situation in Syria and the Arab League’s statement holding the Syrian regime “responsible for this crime” of chemical weapons use. She said that a U.S. response would not include any action involving regime change in Syria but that President Obama was considering a range of options. Deputy Spokesperson Harf also talked about a future Intel briefing with Congress on the issue. She had several heated exchanges with reporters, who asked repetitive questions.
