If We Don’t Move on Syria, Who Will Trust Us?
The Muslim Brotherhood has taken over in Egypt and Libya. They look to be the ones the rebels side with in Syria. Obama is such a wimp that he doesn’t care.
Check it out:
If the Syrian regime ever uses chemical weapons on its own people, the president said, then it will have crossed a “red line;” using chemical weapons is a “game-changer, he said.” The implication was clear: If Syria crossed that bright line, the United States would not tolerate it. We would take action. Military action, presumably.
It’s a safe bet the president wishes he had never uttered those words.
In a letter to Congress, the White House says, “Our intelligence community does assess, with varying degrees of confidence, that the Syrian regime has used chemical weapons on a small scale in Syria, specifically, the chemical agent sarin.”
That is not the kind of information the White House wanted to make public. But knowing word would leak either from intelligence sources in this country or overseas, they had to get out ahead of the story. But this raises a crucial question: what now?
