WASHINGTON, May 29 (Reuters) - The White House said on
Tuesday it did not believe military intervention in Syria was
the right course of action at this time because it would lead to
greater chaos and carnage.
White House spokesman Jay Carney told a briefing, however,
that the United States had not taken any options - including
military action - off of the table with regard to dealing with
the Syrian crisis.
Earlier on Tuesday, the administration expelled Syria's top
diplomat in Washington following what it described as the
massacre of more than 100 civilians in the Syrian town of Houla.
