That’s the Bamster for ya.
have the rebels fire chem weapons at israel?
have the rebels fire chem weapons at russia?
never report that the deal was actually offered, then start bombing saying ‘we never got that in writing’?
claim the whole thing was 0’s idea?
worst case: just set something off here, then blame Syria.
I can promise you, the scribes are scrambling around the offices as we speak.
P.S. Watching U.S. News wires. seeing nothing on this yet.
Russia seized the diplomatic initiative Monday with a plan for Syria to head off the threat of US military strikes by putting its chemical weapons under international control.

Obama, Kerry, et al will claim it was all because of US pressure on Syria.
