Washington - U.S. intelligence officials are still trying to determine whether Syrian President Bashar Assad unleashed a deadly chemical weapons attack against his people earlier this week. That´s the word from the White House after President Barack Obama met with his national security team Saturday to discuss possible next steps in Syria. Officials have said Obama will decide how to respond once the facts are clear. A statement from the White House about Saturday´s meeting said Obama also received a detailed review of the range of options he has requested for the U.S. and its international

Comments:
"Meeting" early enough for 0bama to still play golf, later. Will that be reported, as our forces are moved closer to Syrian border?

Good to see Barry on top of things on the international stage.
What a wondrous man... able to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory in Iraq, content to send young American men and women to Afghanistan to die for a war in which he has set a timetable for defeat, able to sleep soundly (without an Ambien) through a bloody night in Benghazi in which his U.S. ambassador and three other courageous Americans died, sided with the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt as they attempted to eradicate all Christians in that country (currently flip-flopping in this arena) . His face should be etched on Mount Rushmore. Certainly no one could expect that he could crown his accomplishments with any action in Syria.
Truly wondrous!!

I didn´t know we had a national security team, rather a gathering of incoherent dead beats on the campaign trail handing out Obama phones. Not one of them knows where Syria is located and they think the gas attack was caused by one of the Wookie´s bean salads.

CBS News this evening made a big deal about Barry taking time out of his typical daily play
and Reggie cuddle time to meet for 3 hours ( 3 hours !! )
to discuss Syria using WMD.
3 hours is about 2 hours and 55 minutes longer
than Barry´s typical working day, that´s why it´s such a big deal.

How does President Gutsy Call have time for Syria when he´s so busy holding the real culprits in Benghazi to account? Oh, wait...

If President Gutsy Call was asleep - dreaming about fairness, we safely assume - during the Benghazi attack, where was he when chemical weapons were unleashed in Syria? Trick question: we´ve learned from the hard-hitting MSM that there are not nor can ever be WMDs in the Middle East (except for rogue-state Israeli nukes).

If, as President Gutsy Call has proclaimed, the future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam, isn´t he down for the struggle for Syria´s Islamist future?

With so many tough foreign policy questions these days, it´s comforting to know we have a Leftist in the Oval Office - Leftists have such a proud history of getting things right, and making the right Gutsy Calls.

You have to laugh at the idea that the media takes this so called meeting seriously.We´ve heard two different stories in the BinLaden attack.One that they had to call him off the gold course and secondly,he may have been playng spades with Reggie.

He was too gutless to watch the video feed,in case something went wrong,which shows someone else gave the attack order,not him.But after everything turned out OK he went on a world tour spiking the football about it.

Obama has skated by for 5 years by keeping his fingerprints off anything that could go wrong.He´s not going to take unilateral action against Syria.What he´s trying to do is assemble a CYA crowd of different countries he can pass the buck to if things go wrong.

I don´t think Assad is stupid enough to gas people when he knows it would make a door opener excuse for Obama to attack.

i couldn´t disagree more, #12. i believe Assad has made a calculated decision that Obama, even should he do something, will not act decisively. which is worse for he knows he can pretty much act with impunity now as Nerobama has fiddled his way through the burning of Syria. let this human destruction be on Obama´s conscience since he did nothing of consequence to stop it, along with the innocent soldiers sent to slaughter through his strategy in Afghanistan, along with the foreign service / CIA employees in Benghazi left to die without his opening one eye/lifting one finger to help, etc. let me stop before i ruin my Sunday.

How do we know that it is the Syrian government using the gas. It could be the rebels. In that case, what are we to do? Plus, you have 100,000 Russian troops on the ground. And the US through Benghazi may have been supplying the rebels. The pro Obama muslims are out to overthrow Syria. If you were Assad what would you do....end up like Quadaffi? I don´t think he wants to go that route.
Let these muslims have at one another. America has no business in Syria. Regardless the deaths.
America needs to worry about America and our imminent destruction and deaths inside our own fake borders.

The chemical attack in Syria is surely a momentous act by someone (hard to say who at this point) to draw western and especially US forces into the fight on behalf of the rebels.

I doubt that Assad wanted to draw these forces into the fight. It doesn´t make sense, even if you argue that he´s trying to finesse Obama somehow; too dangerous.

Obviously the Islamic fundamentalist rebels would love increased US involvement and support.

Foreign Al Qaeda fighters would love to get US aid in this fight. This is a great way to arm and fund Al Qaeda in general.

The Russians could have done this in order to deliver a military defeat for Obama and the US to cement their hegemony in the Middle East.

Perhaps the Obama government wants to enter the fight to get US citizens to rally around the sagging President during a time of war.

Regardless of who committed this monstrous crime, it´s clear they want the US to fight, thus we should not.

The Prez who voting "not present" by his absence "on vacation" LOL, couldn´t be any funnier as a movie (Oh, if only it was just that?)

Mr Prez, sir, just give a grand speech, vote present and go back to golfing. Let the Brits lead, toss in some more trillions we don´t have and then take credit if it works out.

No more American blood (it is all colored the same color--thank God)spilled in the Middle East for a wag the dog, a democrat-type photo op, or to secure the 2016 election for another Alinsky student, Hill and co-prez redux, Bill.

Harry Truman made a choice when the buck stopped at that desk and leaders led for America and Americans of either political party, he choose a million enemy deaths (that weren´t required)to the death od one more American. (He didn´t mention any color and desegregated, or someone did in 1948 (?) )

With his popularity figures sinking into the low forties Barry play this Syria thing for maximum political advantage to himself to the exclusion of all other concerns. He knows anytime the American military is brought to the fore, American citizens usually rally to their leader. He will also be concentrating on minimizing risk, risk to him politically, that is.

National Interest and Good of the Country are not terms in his playbook. His Interest and His Good will out.

Doctors can be hard people to shock, but a recent case left one surgeon flabbergasted. A 63-year-old man came to hospital complaining of vomiting and stomach pain. He claimed he´d swallowed the lid of a bottle in an act of anger during a marital dispute, and was given an x-ray. Doctors knew what they were seeing was no bottle cap, but it was not until they operated on the man that the source of his complaint was revealed. Twelve bars of gold weighing nearly 400g were found in the man´s stomach and removed. The BBC reports that police and customs authorities had questioned the businessman and confiscated the gold.

Sydney - A strong 6.6-magnitude earthquake struck off Papua New Guinea´s Bougainville Island on Saturday but there was no risk of a widespread tsunami, seismologists said. The quake, scaled back from an initial reported magnitude of 6.9, hit at 0104 GMT and was centred 59 kilometres (36 miles) southwest of the town of Panguna on Bougainville at a depth of 24 kilometres, the US Geological Survey said. In its initial estimate the USGS said there was a low likelihood of casualties and damage. According to the Hawaii-based Pacific Tsunami Warning Center there was no threat of a destructive widespread tsunami based on historical data.

Doha, Qatar - The Muslim Brotherhood, the Islamic political organization that has been defanged in almost every area where it was once a key player, has driven a deep rift between the Gulf´s two most powerful players. Months of tension between Qatar and its neighbors came to a head last month when Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) withdrew their ambassadors. Although the regional Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) announced yesterday that the parties had resolved their disagreement, that will likely remain a surface-level fix unless Qatar abandons its support of the Muslim Brotherhood – something it

Washington - The Obama administration is putting off its decision on the Keystone XL oil pipeline, likely until after the November elections, by extending its review of the controversial project indefinitely. In a surprise announcement Friday as Washington was winding down for Easter, the State Department said federal agencies will have more time to weigh in on the politically fraught decision — but declined to say how much longer. Officials said the decision will have to wait for the dust to settle in Nebraska, where a judge in February overturned a state law that allowed the pipeline´s path through the state.

Washington - The National Archives on Friday released its largest batch yet of previously withheld documents from the Clinton administration, with topics including the conflicts in Somalia and Rwanda, Middle East peace negotiations, the Oklahoma City bombing and public figures as varied as Richard M. Nixon and Oprah Winfrey. The bundle that is likely to receive the most attention, though, is one that covers Hillary Rodham Clinton’s ill-fated attempt as first lady to overhaul the health care system. Mrs. Clinton, who ran for president in 2008, is considering a second attempt in 2016. Here are some notable sections:

At the same time, John Rizzo, who left the CIA as acting general counsel in 2009, said some CIA employees or contractors were overzealous in the use of the tactics but that the CIA informed lawyers at the Justice Department of the excesses.

General Motors Co said it would ask a U.S. court to bar lawsuits related to actions before its 2009 bankruptcy, signaling a tougher stance toward legal claims stemming from its recent recall over faulty ignition switches. GM has said it is protected from liability for claims related to incidents that occurred before it exited bankruptcy in 2009, and has taken steps to raise those issues with the court by filing motions to stay recall-related lawsuits while it asks that bankruptcy court to clarify the extent of that protection. In a filing with the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas on Tuesday, GM asked for a stay on litigation

Beijing - Chinese President Xi Jinping plans to use a purge of senior officials suspected of corruption to put his own men and reform-minded bureaucrats into key positions across the Communist Party, the government and the military, sources said. Xi hopes that removing corrupt officials and those resisting change will allow him to consolidate his grip on power and implement difficult economic, judicial and military reforms that he believes are vital to perpetuate one-party rule, said the sources, who have ties to the leadership. In the most far-reaching example of his intentions, Xi plans to promote about 200 progressive officials

According to a new study, spooning with your partner really does say something about your relationship. Researchers from the University of Hertfordshire surveyed 1,000 people and found that couples who maintained physical contact while they slept were more likely to report being happy in their relationship. An overwhelming 94% of couples who touch while sleeping said they were happy, while only 68% of couples who didn’t touch while snoozing expressed being satisfied with their relationship. Not only that, physical distance while sleeping seemed to translate into emotional distance.

New deportation cases brought by the Obama administration in the nation’s immigration courts have been declining steadily since 2009 and judges have increasingly ruled against deportations, leading to a 43 percent drop in the number of deportations through the courts in the last five years, according to Justice Department statistics released on Wednesday. (Snip) The statistics present a different picture of President Obama’s enforcement policies than the one painted by many immigrant advocates, who have assailed the president as the “deporter in chief” and accused him of rushing to reach a record of two million deportations.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already

Glen Campbell has been suffering from Alzheimer´s for over three years, but the Grammy-winning singer, 78, has recently moved into a facility, PEOPLE has confirmed. "He was moved to an Alzhemier´s facility last week," says a family friend. "I´m not sure what the permanent plan is for him yet. We´ll know more next week." The "Rhinestone Cowboy" crooner first opened up about having Alzheimer´s to PEOPLE in an exclusive 2011 interview. Campbell and his fourth wife, Kim Woolen, decided to go public with the news because Campbell hoped to embark on a final farewell live tour. The couple wanted his

The first step is admitting… It was a simple question to someone accustomed to much tougher ones: What was her proudest achievement as secretary of state? But for a moment, Hillary Rodham Clinton, appearing recently before a friendly audience at a women’s forum in Manhattan, seemed flustered.(Snip)So…no definitive successes and some clear-cut failures. And that’s the generous New York Times assessment. The Democrat fantasy story about Mrs. Clinton paints her as strong and accomplished on her own. In reality, this is a woman who is professionally defined almost entirely by two men in her life, both of whom happen to have

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups. We know something else, too. These investigations
