Syrian President Bashar al-Assad

(Worthy News)-- President Obama's infamous "red line" in Syria seems to have been fully erased, the Washington Times reported.

Amid recent reports Syrian President Bashar Assad again used chemical weapons in his nation's ongoing civil war, Mr. Obama is taking a much different approach than he did in 2012 and 2013, when the U.S. declared itself on the verge of military intervention after Mr. Assad unleashed sarin gas and other chemical agents despite clear warnings from the White House.

The most explicit of those warnings came in the form of the president's "red line" declaration, in which he said the use of chemical weapons was a step too far and would bring dire consequences for Mr. Assad and his forces.
