Obama goes off the rails
Obama has gone completely off the rails. In Sweden today, he tried to say with a straight face that he never set a "red line" threshold for chemical weapons in Syria, but is he not aware of recent advancements in modern audio/visual recording equipment?
This is Obama from just last year, from FoxNation -- “We have been very clear to the Assad regime, but also to other players on the ground, that a red line for us is we start seeing a whole bunch of chemical weapons moving around or being utilized. That would change my calculus,” Obama said. “That would change my equation. . . . We’re monitoring that situation very carefully. We have put together a range of contingency plans.”
Sounds like a "red line" ultimatum to me. We might be witnessing the collapse of a modern presidency that has been propped up by the fawning media. But even the media cannot ignore obvious conflicts like this.
