And then there’s this:
I had about 500 words about the credibility of this story typed but FAIR already has this up:
Actually everything on the FAIR front page about Syria right now is pretty essential reading.
Everything about this is fishy. First off, when since at least the end of World War II, has a US administration told the unvarnished truth in the weeks leading up to military action? They’re the least trustworthy people in the world. And the press is taking their numbers and claims completely uncritically. Most stories are using the government’s over-1400 death toll figure without qualification. The government’s certainty that the rebels definitely don’t have chemical weapons is flatly contradicted by stories that have come out over the past year that rebels have been seizing stockpiles as they capture cities and bases.
The most charitable one can be toward Obama right now is to say that he’s cherry-picking evidence.
In front of the Senate, Kerry stated that boots on the ground might actually be necessary, and there was a friendly story in the Wall Street Journal today about a former Syrian opposition leader saying that we should issue an ultimatum for Assad to step down within a month or else intervene.
This is 2003 all over again.
