Obama 'Looking at All Options' to End Syria Crisis

President Obama said on Thursday that his administration is looking “at all options” to end the crisis in Syria, after Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said the U.S. is considering arming Syrian rebels.

“What Secretary Hagel said today is what I’ve been saying now for months,” Obama said at a news conference in Mexico City. “We are continually evaluating the situation on the ground, working with our international partners to find the best way to move a political transition that has Assad leaving, stabilizes the country, ends the killing and allows the Syrian people to determine their own destiny.”
