White House responds to Putin's NYT op-ed [ Obama hands Security of the US to Russia ]
CNN ^ | Sept ,12,2013 | Jake Tapper

Posted on 09/12/2013 5:06:30 PM PDT by NoLibZone

On the eve of an all-important pow-wow in Geneva, where Secretary of State John Kerry and his Russian counterpart will talk over a plan for stripping Syria of chemical weapons, The New York Times published a stern, and at times standoffish op-ed from their brand new contributor: Russian President Vladimir Putin.

“Putin is now fully invested in Syria’s CW (chemical weapons) disarmament,” a senior White House official told CNN's Jake Tapper, when asked to respond to Putin’s op-ed.

In that opinion piece, Putin speaks directly to the American people and says, among many things, that there is "every reason to believe" it was the rebels, not regime forces, who used poison gas.

Well, haven't that already saved the USA from an ill-conceived, expensive and bloody drive-by on Syria? Perhaps Obama is right in outsourcing US policymaking to people who, at least, leave the US people alone? :-) It's only Obama who is itching to spend US treasure on this train wreck or that one. Not even mentioning the vacations... he is one expensive guy.

Is this what obama was talking about last year when he was talking to Russia's ambassador?

Remember the time when they were on camera and obama didn't realize his mike was on?

I believe he told the ambassador, "wait until next year, after the election".

I wish we were wise enough to confront the gay pervs about soliciting our children.

Russia did it right...."Do what you want but leave our children alone."

Putin and his comrade Obama are united against American exceptionalism and greatness. Imam Obama is delighted to humble and prostrate the USA before our Russian enemy.

There’s no such thing as American exceptionalism. 200 years and we’re already a fascist dictatorship, where the individual’s vote counts for nothing and government can tax, jail and regulate at will.

George Washington himself crushed the Whiskey Rebellion. I guess you think he was a fascist too.

If you love Putin so much, go to Russia where you belong. Americans won’t be sad to see you leave. We will be happy to be rid of your America-hating stench.

That’s what Putin said and before him Obama said it on his world apology tour. At least Putin doesn’t bow. Obama is doing the bidding of Saudi Arabia so they can get the pipeline through Syria and keep making money from OPEC.

America needs to frack and frack some more! Quickly. Exceptionally quickly.

We've been doing the bidding of Saudi Arabia going all the way back to Gulf War I.

“That’s all irrelevant,” the White House official said in response. “He put this proposal forward and he’s now invested in it. That’s good. That’s the best possible reaction. He’s fully invested in Syria’s CW disarmament and that’s potentially better than a military strike – which would deter and degrade but wouldn’t get rid of all the chemical weapons. He now owns this. He has fully asserted ownership of it and he needs to deliver.”

----------------------------->

Very snarky.

Like "neener, nenner".

You are"fully vested/own this/fully asserted ownership/needs to deliver"

Sounds very juvenile.

I’m starting to think that Putin and Assad are trying to goad dingle-Barry into flailing wildly and attacking out of petty spite. Then, they can do some target practice and broker a “peace” deal which will give Putin more power and have the rest of the world even more solidly against us.
