Joe Biden“And what my constant cry was that our biggest problem is our allies – our allies in the region were our largest problem in Syria. The Turks were great friends – and I have the greatest relationship with Erdogan, which I just spent a lot of time with – the Saudis, the Emiratis, etc. What were they doing? They were so determined to take down Assad and essentially have a proxy Sunni-Shia war, what did they do? They poured hundreds of millions of dollars and tens, thousands of tons of weapons into anyone who would fight against Assad except that the people who were being supplied were al-Nusra and al-Qaeda and the extremist elements of jihadis coming from other parts of the world.”
Joe Biden, 2014-10-02

Barack Obama“Now let’s make two things clear: ISIL is not Islamic. No religion condones the killing of innocents, and the vast majority of ISIL’s victims have been Muslim And ISIL is certainly not a state. It was formerly al-Qaida’s affiliate in Iraq, and has taken advantage of sectarian strife and Syria’s civil war to gain territory on both sides of the Iraq-Syrian border. It is recognized by no government, nor the people it subjugates.”
Barack Obama, 2014-09-10

Barack Obama“First of all, I didn't set a red line. The world set a red line. The world set a red line when governments representing 98 percent of the world's population said uh the use of chemical weapons are abhorrent and passed a treaty forbidding their use, even when countries are engaged in war. Congress set a red line when it ratified that treaty. Congress set a red line uh when it indicated that uh in a uh piece of uh legislation entitled the Syria Accountability Act that uh some of the horrendous things happening on the ground there uh need to be answered for. Uh and so, when I said in a press conference that my calculus about what's happening in Syria would be altered by the use of chemical weapons, which the overwhelming uh consensus of humanity says is wrong, um that wasn't something I just kind of made up. I didn't pluck it out of thin air. Uh, there's a reason for it.”
Barack Obama, 2013-09-04 Audio and/or video clip available

General Idriss is running the military arm of that.”
John Kerry, 2013-09-04

Barack Obama“We cannot have a situation where chemical or biological weapons are falling into the hands of the wrong people. We have been very clear to the Assad regime, but also to other players on the ground, that a red line for us is we start seeing a whole bunch of chemical weapons moving around or being utilized. That would change my calculus; that would change my equation.”
Barack Obama, 2012-08-21 Audio and/or video clip available

Barack Obama“We have communicated in no uncertain terms with every player in the region that that's a red line for us and that there would be enormous consequences if we start seeing movement on the chemical weapons front or the use of chemical weapons.”
