Well, when you can't make them go away? Make them appear smaller and less important than they actually are on the ground, I suppose. This is just
amazing. It's the classic 'change the language to change the issue' nonsense. To see this played out on a national level is really hard to
The Obama administration has started to rebrand Syria’s rebels by de-emphasizing the number of al Qaeda fighters among them — a move critics
say is based on questionable intelligence designed to downplay the risks associated with a U.S. military strike on the regime of President Bashar
Rebranding is a good term for it. He has to pretend we aren't really working with the same organization and people who, personally, have been in
other nations in the region and almost certainly have American blood on their hands. As individuals. What was that saying about lipstick on a pig?
Well....maybe not PIG in this case, right?
The best part is yet to come on this story. Where does the United States Secretary of State get his valuable insight to make policy decisions and cite
facts to reporters?
His new characterization of the opposition has drawn scrutiny — in large part because of the way Mr. Kerry backed it up. Rather than cite
official U.S. intelligence assessments, he pointed to an Aug. 30 opinion article penned for The Wall Street Journal by a 26-year-old analyst with ties
to a group that lobbies in Washington on behalf of the Syrian rebels.
I think I need to change my graphic. Tenet isn't the most embarassing official in recent times we have anymore. Tenet just covered up a catastrophe.
Kerry is trying to justify the ongoing process of creating a whole new one that isn't fully there yet.
Yup.... He definitely isn't the worst anymore. Gotta update that. Now which is more foolish here? Obama or Kerry? I'm not sure I can pick. Obama
almost gets the excuse of being Naive where Kerry can't even play that game with a straight face. He actually fought in the last full blown version
of what he's playing on the edges of starting right here?
Of course, there is always another in the middle of these things, right?
Some analysts speculated that Mr. McCain and Mr. Kerry may have sought to draw attention to Ms. O'Bagy’s work because the official intelligence
assessment on Syria’s opposition is classified and because her article offered a chance to point to open-sourced intelligence that fit with their
McCain seems almost senile in his advanced years though. Almost like picking on a handcapped person to call him stupid. He also isn't in executive
positions to make policy by the words he speaks and the signatures he puts to paper, personally. Kerry is to a great extent and of course..his Boss.
Don't worry though, before ya know it, we'll be told there are no Al Qaeda in Syria at all anymore ...and those terrorists carrying black flags and
killing kids for blasphemy and more? Well.. they'll call themselves anything but that, to make it true.
