Despite a new U.S. intelligence community assessment that the Syrian regime likely used chemical weapons on its own people, the White House is still waiting for more evidence before deciding whether Bashar al-Assad has crossed President Barack Obama's "red line."
The White House scrambled Thursday to set up a conference call with reporters following Thursday morning's news that the U.S. intelligence community has concluded with varying levels of confidence that there has been small-scale use of sarin, a deadly nerve gas, inside Syria, most likely by the Syrian regime. Secretary of State John Kerry told lawmakers Thursday that the assessment referenced two instances of chemical weapons use in Syria.

Drudge can take cheap shots at 0bama because 0bama misplayed Syria so badly.
On one hand is Assad. On the other side is Al Qaeda fighting Assad.
Which side would the U.S. take if we went in?!
We win by staying out.
Qualify this line as “Light Pink” we’re waiting for the red one.
arabs killing arabs equals win-win for US if you ask me.
Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction , maybe
Bashar al-Assad used Chemical weapons , maybe
Hard to say if Assad used the Sarin gas...or if Al Qaeda used it fighting against Assad.
Both sides are dirty.
Wasn’t there something from Saddam Hussein that he called the red line of death? It was a pretty laughable prop piece.
What difference does it make?
I dont know what we should or shouldn’t do about Syria, but
the world (and especially the Islamicist enemies of America) just LAUGH at us when we put out bs statements or pronouncements like this....
contradicting or waffling from what we said we’d do just yesterday and last week and the month before and the year before
perhaps it would be better if someone could just pull the plug on that infamous Teleprompter for a few weeks, if only to give the blessed thing a rest?
I think it only matters to the Israeli’s.
Translation: We believe that chemical weapons were used but by the Muslim Brotherhood and rebels. So we are going to weasel out of doing aything.
...and never will know.
If someone gives the Teleprompter a rest, it will give us all a rest from all this bs too
Works for me.
Whatever side. Obama takes, I want the other side.
Well it turns out he didn't say how far the line had to be crossed before it was really crossed.
This is a “Line of Death”....you cross it, you die.
Ok, you cross this line, you die.
Cross this line, you die.
Cross this line, you die.
Alright, that’s it, you come knocking on my door, I’m not coming out...nyaah!
Light pink? Is Reggie Love involved?
