Defense Secretary James Mattis doubles down on previous claims saying all options are on the table for Syria.
Meeting with the Dutch defense minister Wednesday, Mattis would not give away too much information about the next move by the U.S., but did provide insight into what stage of the decision-making process they’re currently in.
“We’re still assessing the intelligence – ourselves and our allies,” Secretary Mattis said. “We’re still working on this. We stand ready to provide military options if they’re appropriate as the president determined.”
Mattis has previously said a military option is possible.
President Trump said he would make a decision on Syria in the very near future.
