White House press secretary Jay Carney said Monday that the administration had no deadline for determining definitively whether Syria had used chemical weapons. "What I won't do is speculate about how much time might be required to gather the evidence necessary to be able to assess clearly, in a way that has been corroborated and reviewed, whether or not this red line has been crossed," Carney said. "I think all Americans would hope and expect that on a matter this serious that we would be very careful in this process and insist that we gather all the facts."I'm pretty sure that answer would not be allowed at the Bush Library in any fashion.
And as we know, historically this guy has an sterling record.
William Kristol wants to go to war in Syria, but he won't say what that war should look like. Appearing on Fox News Sunday to discuss reports of chemical weapons attacks in Syria, the Weekly Standard editor (and noted Iraq war hawk) attacked President Obama as "totally irresponsible" for indicating that he doesn't want "to start another war," saying: "You've got to do what you've got to do."Solid advice...no doubt...like the result of a healthy dose of fiber.
