To lead off, here’s another report, this time from the Germans, that casts doubt on whether Assad is responsible for the use of chemical weapons on Syrian forces. According to this source, intercepted communications showed Assad denying permission for the use of chemical weapons.
Bashir Assad appears to have accepted Vladimir Putin’s proposal to put his chemical weapons under international control, for subsequent dismantling.
After an attack on Syria has been spun as an effort to reduce the influence of Iran, perhaps Obama will have to make up another story, explaining why firing missiles on Syria is no longer necessary, and we don’t have to worry about Iran anymore.
Every few hours brings a new shift in the Middle East policy and plans. It’s making Putin look almost reasonable, and Obama appear indecisive and incompetent. Who would want to rely on U.S. foreign policy now?
Obama’s agenda to diminish the stature of the U.S. in the world is proceeding as well as any leftist could hope.
****Meanwhile, don’t forget to tell your congress critters to DEFUND obamacare and to kiss off the latest immigration amnesty package, while you voice your opinion on the Syrian mess.
