WASHINGTON -- President Obama said Friday he is considering a "limited, narrow act" as a military response to Syria's alleged use of chemical weapons against its own citizens.

Calling it "a challenge to the world," Obama said the use of chemical weapons threatens U.S. national security and merits a response.

"We're not considering any open-ended commitment," the president said. "We're not considering any boots-on-the-ground approach."

Obama emphasized that he still has not made any decisions about what actions the U.S. will take.

"We have consulted with allies," he said. "We have consulted with Congress."
