Gordon Klingenschmitt deals, first and foremost, not in faith, but in excuses, especially of the shallow variety.
Klingenschmitt most recently received notice by this column for trying to excuse his opposition to the Affordable Care Act by claiming "Obamacare causes cancer". Today, via his Youtube channel, Klingenschmitt presented his full list of reasons for opposing "Obama's Syria".
But in addition to being unable to resist tacking Obama's name onto the various atrocities committed in the region, Klingenschmitt was also unable to resist trying to excuse Obama's predecessor, George W. Bush.
Among Klingenschmitt's long list of (mostly legitimate) grievances, he charged that Syria acquired its chemical weapons from Iraq in 2002.
Which would explain why U.S. forces were unable to locate any weapons of mass destruction after the 2003 invasion!
No, wait, that's not me being sarcastic. That's literally his argument.
"Where did the chemical weapons come from? They came from Iraq. Ten years ago. Well this confirms a report from a year ago from Investors Business Daily reported that Syria's chemical weapons came from Iraq as early as 2002, when Saddam Hussein moved his chemical weapons of mass destruction into Syria before the second Gulf War. They reported, about a year ago, the chemical weapons stockpile of Syrian President Assad may be, in a large part, part of the legacy of WMDs moved from Hussein's Iraq into Syria before Operation Iraqi Freedom.
"If so, this may not be -- may be the reason not much was found in the way of weapons of mass destruction by the victorious U.S. forces in 2003."
