strategy on syria remain w.'s aleksandra naaman has more from washington president still no triumph was very quick to declare success after the strikes against syria sweeting mission accomplished a phrase that invited unwelcome comparisons to george w. bush and he experiences in iraq four notes from some pain seems to be successful the you ask was able to send a clear signal to syria and its patrons and to avoid a direct confrontation with the russians and the pentagon is confident that it has crippled assad's chemical weapons program but the question remains what is exactly the mission and what is president's tromps strategy on syria and more and more lawmakers on both sides of the aisle demand answers criticizing the president's position as inconsistent and saying that the broader strategy is needed

. allows you to use washington bureau chief alexandra fund naaman for more now we're joined by journalist on child for following developments in syria from neighboring lebanon for us and we heard from washington there that president bush says it's mission accomplished what exactly was that mission then it wasn't of course an attempt to seize president assad was us. well no it certainly wasn't the mission as stated by dollar trump was to ensure that assad regime does not conduct any chemical attacks ever again in that mission has certainly not been accomplished it's of course a political statement for dollar trump to me but if he has accomplished that mission as he says he has and certainly explain how saw three sites have been attacked allegedly these sites were. holding chemical stockpiles there's no
10:06 am
evidence of that that's been provided let's for a moment believe that is true it is very easy still for the assad regime if indeed this history making chemical weapons to continue to make them remember in two thousand and thirteen russia and the united states had an understanding that assad is going to give up all of the chemical stockpiles of the chemical attacks have continued and the strike yesterday has been quite limited if you see the reaction that has come out of damascus and in many ways the strike is not been as huge as was promised by door drunk but he says that if there are more attacks the united states is locked and loaded so there will be more so that perhaps will prove to be some sort of a deterrent to the assad regime but as far as we speak to the experts analysis of vision they all seem to believe that it will not change assad regime speaking of the one bit. will whether the strikes as opposed to terror from further chemical attacks or not remains to be seen but what we don't know is what the syrians are
