Pelosi Declares Old Summit Partner ‘Outside the Circle of Civilized Human Behavior’



Text  



House minority leader Nancy Pelosi, today: “President Obama didn’t draw a red line; humanity drew a red line decades ago.” She said Assad’s use of chemical weapons was “behavior outside the circle of civilized human behavior, and we must respond.”

She also said that the United Nations acted too slowly to be the principal venue for resolving the Syrian crisis.
