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.

Might check out who killed Team six by loose lipping and self praising.

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.

Washington - The CIA’s former top lawyer disputes Senate findings that the spy agency lied about its brutal interrogations of terrorists, insisting the tactics produced useful intelligence and flatly denying that the CIA misled the former Bush administration, Congress and the American public. 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. Rizzo was responsible for helping to create the legal foundation for permitting waterboarding,

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.

A French lab has lost more than 2,000 vials containing fragments of the deadly SARS virus, which killed nearly 800 people in a 2003 epidemic across four continents. The Pasteur Institute in Paris, France announced this week that it realized it was missing the vials and contacted the country’s National Security Agency of Medicines and Health Products to conduct an investigation on April 8, according to a news release. Although the fragments are not dangerous, they do raise concerns by revealing the lab’s vulnerability, said Dr. William Schaffner, chair of preventive medicine at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville,

Cities and counties won’t be allowed to raise the minimum wage under a law signed Monday by Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin (R). Under the new law, which passed the state legislature on party-line votes earlier this year, cities would be prohibited from raising the minimum wage above the $7.25 federal mark, and they would be prevented from requiring employers to provide sick days to their employees. Backers of the new law said differing wages in different cities would be a hardship for businesses. In a statement, Fallin said different wage laws would hurt job creation. In recent years, cities and localities across the country have unilaterally

An orange-black ribbon holds
a clue to eastern Ukraine´s chaos

As pro-Russia protests spread in eastern Ukraine, a strip of striped orange-and-black fabric has become as ubiquitous as the armed men in unmarked military fatigues. Its name is the Ribbon of Saint George. Imbued with history, it’s a powerful symbol in the ongoing information battle over Ukraine. For Russians it´s a mark of allegiance to the state – both the fearsome, expansionist Russian state of old and its modern successor under President Vladimir Putin. When pro-Russia rallies took place last December, seeking to rival the Maidan demonstrations in Kiev, very few ribbons were seen.

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

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

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.
