On Syria Vote, Trust, but Verify

http://www.nytimes.com/2013/09/07/opinion/on-syria-vote-trust-but-verify.html?_r=0

“THE documentary record regarding an attack on Syria consists of just two papers: a four-page unclassified summary and a 12-page classified summary. The first enumerates only the evidence in favor of an attack.

The danger of the administration’s approach was illustrated by a widely read report last week in The Daily Caller, which claimed that the Obama administration had selectively used intelligence to justify military strikes in Syria, with one report “doctored so that it leads a reader to just the opposite conclusion reached by the original report.”

The allegedly doctored report attributes the attack to the Syrian general staff. But according to The Daily Caller, “it was clear that ‘the Syrian general staff were out of their minds with panic that an unauthorized strike had been launched by the 155th Brigade in express defiance of their instructions.’ ”

nor do they provide an answer for whether military strikes are the correct course. Interesting coming from CNN.

How did that work out in Benghazi, CNN?

You clowns still kissing Obama’s backside, I see.

I noticed the constricted pupils shown on several victims but didn’t notice other evidence of sarin exposure such as vomiting, defecation and urination.

Here are some dead kids that the rebels we support killed at our behest so we could hopefully stir up enough emotions to get support to go kill more people, overthrow Assad and insert extremist yahoos in his place. Yup, that’s compelling evidence for intervention alright.

Where are the bodies of those 1400 victims? They only show us dubious pictures shot by no one knows who. Show the real corpses. Cheap fakery - that’s my word.
