United States officials are not entirely confident they know who is behind the airstrikes being reported against Islamic State of Iraq and Syria forces in western Iraq. From ABC News:
According to the U.S. official, the United States has pretty good information that the Syrians are behind the fighter aircraft bombing in western Al Anbar, a province in Iraq that includes the Syrian border. The official said the United States is still trying to gather more information that Syria was behind the strikes...
A U.S. official also said it was not clear whether the Iraqi government requested or authorized Syrian air strikes in Iraqi territory.
The Wall Street Journal reported confidently this morning that Syrian planes carried out the attackswhich killed at least 50 peopleand it seems improbable that any other group would have the motive or the means to strike in that area. But the WSJ also wrote that U.S. officials "weren't able to confirm" Syria's involvement.

Go back to bed Barack. Reggie’s bringing you some warm milk.
Chaos cuts both ways, Barry. You might overwhelm the system, but then the system won’t be there to protect you anymore.
We spend more on our military than ALL THE REST OF THE WORLD combined and we don’t know who bombed who in a vital region? Where’s that $500+ billion going, to promote gay rights?
They will be able to tell us after they watch the news tonight.
We don’t know much of anything.
Bullshiite! Anybody know how many people died during antiwar Obama’s regime?
uhhhh....isn’t someone finally blowing up ISIS a good thing?

DANG!!! Obama did the eenee meenee, but forgot the mynee, and the mo.
Not if your a Sunni Muslim (Obama).
It was Anbar....... there’s nothing and practically nobody there to detect the id of the planes.
“The official said, “The United States is still trying to gather more information that Syria was behind the strikes...”....
If that “information gathering” takes as long to get information FROM the gubmint, think how long it will take to GET the information in the first place. They are probably waiting to read it in the newspapers. (sarc)
It is to me and I don’t care who it is just as long as they keep doing it.
Does anyone else get a warm fuzzy feeling knowing that Baracko is in charge?

OMG! They can just not stop lying......
Wonder if anyone at all in Washington remembers to to speak the truth...
I’d like to find out it is someone other than us, who is also just getting started.
Well, I’m sure the MSM will let little Barry know as soon as he wakes up from his drug induced coma.
And he will be dutifully surprised and shocked I’m sure. And will work, with laser like focus, to get to the bottom of it. Just as soon as he finishes he round of golf.
It would need to be somebody with fighter aircraft, wouldn’t it? That sort of narrows it down. And if it wasn’t us, does it matter?
My thoughts - could Israel have convinced Syria to look the other way, just this once? Enemy of my enemy and whatnot? The “uncertainty” on the US’s part is either genuine (Israel may not have let us in on this) or convenient.
