How damn convenient!

Syria Has Used Chemical Weapons Against Rebels, U.S. and European Officials Conclude
American and European intelligence analysts now believe that President Bashar al-Assad’s troops have used chemical weapons against rebel forces in the civil war in Syria, an assessment that will put added pressure on a deeply divided Obama administration to develop a response to a provocation that the president himself has declared a “red line.”

So says the NYT quoting an ‘internal memorandum’. And just as the ‘rebels’ got a bloody nose and it looks like the Syrian govt might be turning the corner. It’s Saddam’s phony bloody WMD all over again!

Shame on us for doing nothing to stop the barbarians!

Don't look to Democrat Dianne Feinstein for help when it comes to the real issues.  This plutocrat typifies the treachery of Obama's party. Who needs enemies when you have friends like these?
