Cui Bono?

September 2, 2013

It would seem Presidente Obigmouth, “The Great Obfuscator” has finally dug himself a hole he can’t spin himself out of. What to do? Call in SOS Lurch and drop the ball on Congress!  Kerry defended the administration’s confidence that al-Assad carried out sarin gas attacks against Syrian citizens with David Gregory on CNN.


Gregory: “I just want to underline the news you made this morning. This is a sarin gas attack, perpetrated by the Assad regime. This is a slam dunk case that he did it?”

Kerry: “The words ‘slam dunk’ should be retired from American national security issues,”  (“Slam dunk” is a reference to then-CIA Director George Tenet’s description, in a 2002 meeting with George W Bush, of reports that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction.) “We are saying that the high confidence that the intelligence community has expressed, and the case that I laid out the other day, is growing stronger by the day.”

Well, geez Johnny. Would that be the same “intelligence community” the administration said was the source of the myth that  Benghazi was a spontaneous reaction to a video? Or perhaps the one Colin Powell assured the world held “high confidence” of the presence of WMD in Iraq? Ummm, watch your back, Johnny. It didn’t go so well for Powell.

I have to go with Pat Buchannan and Rand Paul. Cui bono? (To whose benefit?) Assad is unquestionably an evil mad man, but not an idiot. Any despot knows brutality against your own people inspires them toward opposition and invites attack from outside forces. What is absolutely certain is al Qaida, the Brotherhood and Iran are at the heart of the Syrian Civil War, and are the only factions of the rebellion in a position to take advantage of the power vacuum created by America removing Assad.


So Barry the bonehead supported Morsi and the Brotherhood against Mubarak in Egypt, and did the same with Gadhafi in Libya, but would not support the Iranian uprising against the Mullahs overruling the elections. How’d that go, Mr Nobel Putz Prize? Er, not so hot.

So, with only 9% of Americans approving military intervention, Dear Leader drops the ball on Congress – who enjoys roughly the same public approval – and whom he knows will not approve anything he proposes. Then he’ll whine, “I tried to help but those obstructionist Republicrats wouldn’t let me.” Pretty pathetic, but it’s the only spin he has left.

So now the leader of the free world is free to pursue more urgent matters. Thirty minutes after the punt to Congress speech…
