House Intelligence Committee chair Mike Rogers said this morning on CBS that "it is abundantly clear that that red line has been crossed." Watch here.

The rest of the article is zero almost hinting at what [might have] happened to Assad yesterday.

It is time for the Shiites to kill the Sunites and vice versa, and this does not affect us.

But the evidence suggests the WMD attack was carried out by Rebels who used Chlorine Gas from that Chlorine Gas plant they had overrun a few months ago. The rocket was fired from an area under control of an Al Qeada linked terrorist organization that used to be supported by the US until it was discovered that they were indeed supporting actual terrorist.

Maybe Assad is still alive. Here is a conflicting report saying that a Israeli website started the rumor of Assad’s death without any evidence:

How about the "War Powers Act?

Has dear leader finally crossed it with his 5th illegal war yet?

He is an abomination that desolation follows!

That’s my interpretation. I’m irritated at the deliberate misinterpretation by a supposedly intelligent Congress member. There’s nothing we need less than another involvement in that craphole section of the world.

Who crossed the red line though? Assad’s people trying to scare, kill, or demoralize terrorist rebels? Terrorist rebels trying to scare, kill, or demoralize Assad’s people? Journalists trying to scare, kill, or demoralize Americans by inventing a story? In any case, I find it hard to care how some evil, terrorist-supporting thugs in Syria are killing other evil, terrorist-supporting thugs in Syria.
