Skip to comments.White House responds to Putin's NYT op-ed [ Obama hands Security of the US to Russia ]
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 Syrias CW (chemical weapons) disarmament, a senior White House official told CNN's Jake Tapper, when asked to respond to Putins 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.

Mr. Flexible, Barry Soetoro.
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.
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".
Russia did it right...."Do what you want but leave our children alone."
Creepy. Get your affairs in order people.
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.
Obama skeered-a Pooty Poot.
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.
Theres no such thing as American exceptionalism.
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.
Like "neener, nenner".
You are"fully vested/own this/fully asserted ownership/needs to deliver"
Sounds very juvenile.
Fracking - now THAT’S exceptional.
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.
What a neo-con you are. Rush tell you what to think?
