Obama and Kerry have operated under the misconception that Americans are too ignorant to realizeother, sophisticated G -7 countries have intelligence gathering techniques that rival or exceed ours, andthat is why the likes of Great Britain, Russia, Israel, and Germany, among others, summarily dismissedhis intentions to attack Syria at the G-
20 Summit in Russia last week. In fact, Germany’s Der Spiegel just
released copies of certain intelligence intercepts this morning proving the Assad did NOT authorize theuse of chemical weapons and in fact was strongly opposed to doing so. Its intelligence gathering clearlyshows that the use of nerve gas was by one of the rag-
tag rebel groups, instead. Gee, I can’t imagine the
Muslim Brotherhood resorting to such barbaric techniques, can you?Watching the Obama administration is like watching the mini-car pull into the center ring at the circus,and out comes one clown, after another, after another, after another.
Putin gains huge political capital for seizing on Kerry’s loose ton
gue, Kerry inadvertently presented anopening against his bosses wishes for military action, and Obama comes across as a more disorganizedand weak president, not only domestically, but equally if not more damaging, internationally as well.
forget: the man who lied about gun running to the Mexican cartels, IRS targeting, thecontents of the health care bill, NSA eavesdropping, is the same psychopath that assured Americans
there would be “no boots on the ground”, and that it will be a very
small, strategic attack.Why, then, do soldiers at Ft. Hood already have in hand their deployment assignments to go to Syria?
