The Pentagon and the White House are in detailed discussions on military options to respond to a poison gas attack in Syria that killed scores of civilians, and which Washington has blamed on the Syrian government, a U.S. official said on Thursday.
Defense Secretary Jim Mattis will presumably discuss the options when he meets with President Donald Trump at his Mar-a-Lago retreat in Florida, the official said, speaking on condition of anonymity. Mattis is due in Florida later on Thursday as part of a prescheduled trip.
Talks about potential responses are already under way, including between Mattis and White House national security adviser H.R. McMaster, the official added.
