WASHINGTON (Reuters) - House of Representatives Speaker John Boehner told the White House on Monday that it must consult with Congress before any response to the Syrian government's apparent use of chemical weapons.

"The speaker made clear that before any action is taken, there must be meaningful consultation with members of Congress, as well as clearly defined objectives and a broader strategy to achieve stability," Boehner spokesman Brendan Buck said in a statement.
