Obama lied to the American people, when he said he had plenty of proof that Assad launched the saran gas attacks. He can't deem to convince the Russians, Chinese, French, British, Mongolian hordes, Roman legions, or Attila and the Huns. .Chief of Staff Denis McDonough argued that it was common sense to deduce Assad launched the gas attack. Common sense says Assad would attack a civilian target, when the rebel camp was just two miles away? Really? Common sense says Assad would attack the rebels with gas just as they driving them out of the country and three days after Assad allowed UN inspectors into the country.
What has really happened is the world all finally caught on to Obama's game. He always claims to have proof that never materialize. No one wants to take the fall for Obama, not even democrats in the House. He will have to go it alone and keep pretending he has proof. This is something even democrats could be talked into impeaching for. He'd better watch his step.
Democratic Rep John McGovern said that Obama should pull the request and save himself the embarrassment at losing to his own party.Universally unpopular, his plans to attack Syria carry much risk with little hopes of winning anything. Iran, Syria, and Hezbollah have threatened Israel. Iran, Russia and Syria have threatened the US, who would be seen as the aggressor after losing a vote in the security council.
Obama has yet to reveal any proof that it was Assad and not Al Qaeda. He, John Kerry and Denis McDonough have only offered proof someone released gas and let's face it, Obama has not been very successful in this department. Think Professor Gates and George Zimmerman. So far, their "proof" of Assad's guilt is a film showing people of dying from gas poisoning. Did Obama get that from CNN just like the pictures of the dead,,,,from 2003, Iraq. The also have the toxicity report from a victim who died from saran gas. Maybe they have a glove for him to try on?
Let's face it, Obama needs a more credible witness. After, your insurance costs will go down 2500 a year, Benghazi was over a 12 minute Internet movie, and the IRS scandal was about 2 rogue agents in the Cincinnati office, his credibility is down with everyone and not just the people who know him well.
