As events in Syria get worse by the day, any news of potential relief is jumped at, and that’s what happened when a Breaking News tweet came out citing Reuters, saying the U.S. may be sending aid to the Syrians.The tweet: “White House says US considering sending humanitarian aid to Syrian people as it ramps up pressure on Assad government – @Reuters

Although there is no corresponding tweet @Reuters, MSNBC reports that White House spokesman Jay Carney told reporters today that  “We are going to continue to work with international allies … to put the pressure required. We are exploring the possibility of providing humanitarian aid to Syrians.”

A little non-committal, but better than nothing. Carney also said that the U.S. would not be arming the anti-government rebels.
