President Barack Obama says he's very concerned about Syria becoming an enclave for extremism after the rule of President Bashar Assad is over.

Obama said during a news conference in Jordan Friday that something has been broken in Syria and won't be fixed immediately after Assad's regime is gone.

He said Assad has ruled over the tragic and heartbreaking deaths of innocents. He said extremists survive in that kind of chaos.

Obama said he's confident Assad will go, it's just a question of when.
