President Barack Obama – The Lying King … “My Credibility Is Not On The Line” … “I Didn’t Set a Red Line. The World set a Red Line … “Congress set a red line …”
LION LYING KING: Is Barack Obama capable of telling the truth, or taking responsibility for anything?
President Barack Obama actually had the audacity to say that he did not set a red line. Instead, the buck stops with everyone else but President Obama. It is unbelievable that this man cannot take the accountability and responsibility for admitting to what he has already said. Obama says that his “credibility is not on the line” and that he “didn’t set a red line”, it was the world and the Congress that did so. Hmm, really? If the world had set a red line when it came to chemical weapons in Syria, why does Obama have a Coalition of None when it comes to military action against Syria? And Congress also set the red line, the same Congress that Obama had no intention of getting military approval from until he was forced to. So instead, on a world stage a US president threw the International community and US Congress under the bus. UNREAL. What else should be have expected from a community agitator?
Can you say: MISLEADER!
PRESIDENT OBAMA: Let me unpack the question. First of all, I didn’t set a red line. The world set a red line. The world set a red line when governments representing 98 percent of the world’s population said the use of chemical weapons are abhorrent and passed a treaty forbidding their use even when countries are engaged in war. Congress set a red line when it ratified that treaty. Congress set a red line when it indicated that in a piece of legislation titled the Syria Accountability Act that some of the horrendous thing that are happening on the ground there need to be answered for. And so, when I said, in a press conference, that my calculus about what’s happening in Syria would be altered by the use of chemical weapons, which the overwhelming consensus of humanity says is wrong, that wasn’t something I just kind of made up. I didn’t pluck it out of thin air. There was a reason for it. That’s point number one. Point number two, my credibility is not on the line. The international community’s credibility is on the line. And America and Congress’ credibility is on the line because we give lip service to the notion that these international norms are important.
How does Obama words above that he did not draw a red line contrast with Obama’s words from an August 2012 statement? It would appear that he most certainly did have a red line for us. The me, me, me, I, I, I president said “us” which most likely meant his administration, not the United States. Remember, Obama had no intention of asking for Congressional approval until the British Parliament said “NO” to PM Cameron and the US polls were so negatively opposed to a military strike against Syria.
