12. Oh, I think that is very much what Obama wants to know.

The UK, France and Israel may already be convinced but he seems not to want to "know" that the Syrian government used sarin gas unless there is much more conclusive evidence. It's kind of the opposite of Bush who did not want to "know" that Iraq did not have WMD no matter how conclusive the evidence was.

Bush used fear, emotion and supposition to base his policy on Iraq. All that is typical of republican behavior. Obama seems to want to find what the actual facts are and base his policy on Syria based on these, not on fear, emotion and supposition. Facts have a liberal bias.
