Talk about being hoisted on your own petard...hamstrung by your own rhetoric..or whatever. There's only one reason that Obama hasn't called out Assad for crossing the supposed "red line" on using WMDs. That's because Assad got his nerve gas, and other goodies, from Saddam..just before the war began...there were many documented stories about secret, late-night convoys from Bagdad to secret Syrian military bases. So, Saddam DID in fact possess WMDs..and that means....gasp...BUSH WAS RIGHT!!
Thanks for that background!
Maybe because (a) it was a war and making that kind of information public could harm your war effort (b) they really didn't want to inform several other insane governments exactly where those weapons were, and (c) they were men enough not to change their strategies just because some Democrats were squealing like little girls?
Thoughtful post by the way; thank you for writing it!
Sad thing is we supplied them to saddam in 1979 when we hated Iran. Saddam used them against the Iranians. Jimmy carter gave it to them. That’s why Bushvand everybody knew they existed . Saddam gave them to Syria.
