You have to admit that it would be an intelligence coup of the highest
degree if the rebels actually did this and framed Assad successfully. Like
the Russians say, what did Assad have to gain by doing this? He was winning
by all accounts, and now he may soon be handed a whoop ass by a major world

So is Assad that stupid, or are the rebels that smart? And if the rebels
are that smart, are Obama and the CIA that dumb? Well, the CIA has been
fooled before *cough* Iraq *cough*... The similarity is interesting because
the Obama white house is leaning on the CIA in a heavy way for "actionable
evidence" in exactly the same way the Bush white house did.

Those who do not understand history are doomed to repeat it, but only a
decade later!?! It boggles the mind.

The fallout for this will be great if Obama pierces the human shields Assad
has now put in place around all of his goodies. Not to mention the spanking
Israel stands to face.

Obama was an idiot to put that "red line" statement out there. Hide behind
John Kerry, you wimp!
