The Senate Intelligence Committee has gathered YouTube videos reportedly showing evidence of a chemical weapons attack by the Syrian government in late August.
The videos were shown to the members of the Senate Intelligence Committee on Thursday, September 5th, and were just released to the public.
Syrian President Bashar Assad is accused of using chemical weapons on innocent civilians on August 21st.
More than 1,400 people appear to have symptoms of nerve gas poisoning in the video.
The footage was posted on YouTube by pro-Syrian opposition users.
Lawmakers in both parties oppose using military force against Syria.
The first votes by the full Senate could come Wednesday.
Concerns over military action spawned protests across the country, including one in Tulsa on Sunday near 71st and Memorial.
Some of the protestors were Syrians who now live in Oklahoma.
On Sunday, Secretary of State John Kerry spoke from Paris saying that the videos are proof the attack is not something Americans can ignore.
Kerry is in Europe to rally support for military intervention in Syria.
WARNING: These videos contain disturbing images of dead bodies, including children.
