... President Bashar al-Assad did not personally order last month's chemical weapons attack near Damascus that has triggered calls for US military intervention, and blocked numerous requests from his military commanders against opponents in recent months, a German newspaper has reported, citing unidentified, high-level national security sources.

If Obama, Kerry, McCain, etc, staked out a position that such and such happened, and if, if it didn't happen that way, how long before they and the intelligence sources they relied on, start to look highly questionable and unreliable?
They are giving Obama a back door to escape from the corner he has painted himself into.
But he is too stupid to use it.
The Obama bots, and McCain and Graham sycophants start putting junk in the keyword section in 3...2...1...
BO is just pissed that he has to deal with this. It’s much too hard for him. Why can’t he just go to Hollywood and be on Jay or David and have some fun just being a celebrity. He does get to fly out there on the party plane and have everyone bow and scrape to him. This serious war stuff is just not his cup o tea.
Oh my. The DC elites have no direct evidence, but want to start WW3.
Read the story, not good news still because it seems to imply the Syrian ruling government still is behind the attacks, just people lower in the chain of command.
Not that that would sway me into supporting an attack, the facts just don’t seem to change the basics from what I read.
Who ordered the gas??/Obama maybe? Maybe a plant in the Syrian military did it to start the whole thing off and make Obama look good and manly? Maybe It was an accident in command? What ever—it stinks.
I know, but Russia has that 100 page dossier the UN will look at, apparently the Turks did arrest Syrian rebels in Turkish territory trying to smuggle 2kg sarin gas into Syria...
The message being sent to us: do American elected officials trust any intelligence, if so what, and from whom - and enough to launch missile strikes?
So THIS is the “irrefutable evidence” we were supposed to believe?
The question I just posed to someone else:
Was this information blocked from key leaders and their subordinates, or was it knowingly ignored?
The reason they’re scared about 2014? Majority to enable impeachment.
Why has Obama been slow, apathetic and lethargic on Benghazi - where Americans were killed- and gung ho on the chemical attacks where no Americans were killed?
“Why has Obama been slow, apathetic and lethargic on Benghazi - where Americans were killed- and gung ho on the chemical attacks where no Americans were killed?”
Because none of Obama’s people were killed in Benghazi.
Obama ordered it.
A false flag agent bribed by Saudi Arabia, or someone trying to instigate a coup.
What if the rebels had assistance in breaking into the government communication lines with appropriate directives for release authority? Who would do that? No leader would be that cold and heartless, would they?
