Kerry: Obama Drew the Red Line
This red line thing is ridiculous. How sad is it that this is the most important part in the discussion.
Check it out:
Obama last week… He didn’t say it once or twice. He said four times he didn’t draw the red line. Today, Kerry said, “President Obama, when he had conclusive evidence that the line that he had drawn had been crossed, he decided that was sufficient then to send a message, and he (pause) dictated that we should assist the opposition.” Well, the opposition is on its own. The rebels are being bombed to smithereens today by Bashar Assad with conventional weapons.
They haven’t gotten anything from us.
We’re not offering any assistance to the rebels at all. They’re getting creamed. They’re getting blown to bits with conventional bombs and warfare weapons and so forth, and those are the people whose side we were on.
