[The State Department] released a detailed intelligence summary...that the Syrian government used chemical munitions...killed 1,429 people, nearly a third of them children.

The intelligence summary, cited...in a televised briefing at the State Department, contained by far the most specific contentions the administration has publicly made in arguing that the Syrian government had crossed a threshhold of intolerable behavior...justifying an international military response.

[Human] rights activists and medical aid workers say [attack] left hundreds asphyxiated in what appeared to be the most egregious mass killing in the [Syrian] conflict..

A summary of the intelligence assessment said its conclusions were based on “human, signals and geospatial intelligence as well as a significant body of open-source reporting.”
