Life comes at you fast. Thats all I can say right now about the Obama administrations disastrous Syrian policy that did nothing to stop bloodshed or hold any one accountable for that matter because it probably would have led to a military decision that President Obama didnt want to make. In 2014, the administration celebrated its landmark accomplishment of removing Syrias declared chemical weapons stockpile without military strikes. Russia helped us with these negotiations, which were a total failure since chemical weapons were used against the town of Khan Shaykhun located in the Idlib Province last week. The attack killed at least 80 people, including women and children. The government of President Bashar al-Assad reportedly carried out the attack, prompting President Trump to launch a military strike, hopefully signaling the start of a clean up of this mess the Obama White House left behind. Many are weary that it might suck us into another war in the Middle East. Still, pundits and politicians from across the spectrum have applauded the Trump administration for taking action. Now, its a question about strategy, but I digress.
Apparently, even as the Obama administration and its allies were peddling the notion that 100 percent of Syrias chemical weapons stockpiles were removed and destroyed, some officials now admit that they knew some were still left in the country, as evidenced by the latest attack (via Washington Examiner) [emphasis mine]:
A former Obama official acknowledged Sunday that the U.S. "always knew" an agreement with Syrian President Bashar Assad did not clear all chemical weapons out of Syria, despite the fact that the administration touted the deal as an unequivocal success at the time.
"We always knew we had not gotten everything, that the Syrians had not been fully forthcoming in their declaration," Tony Blinken, a former deputy secretary of state and former deputy national security adviser under Barack Obama, told the New York Times.
John Kerry, then Obama's secretary of state, and Susan Rice, Obama's national security adviser, had both touted a 2013 agreement with Russia, Syria and the U.S. that was designed to rid the Assad regime of its chemical weapons stockpile. Kerry said in 2014 that they deal had resulted in Syria purging "100 percent" of its chemical agents.
.@JohnKerry: Today the last 8% of declared chemical weapons were removed from #Syria. Great work done by all involved http://t.co/ccPDVkNISz— Department of State (@StateDept) June 24, 2014

So, while Kerry, the then-face of American foreign policy and our chief diplomat said that the stockpile had been removed, his deputy admits that they knew that wasnt the case. In keeping with the administrations record post-Benghazi, is this another lie from the Obama administration? Its not the first time. We all remember when then-UN Ambassador Susan Rice, who eventually became national security adviser to Obama, said that the Benghazi attack was a spontaneous reaction to an offensive YouTube video. It was eventually found out to be a well-planned terrorist attack by al-Qaeda affiliates, which the administration knew hours after the assault. Now, U.S. intelligence agencies say that Assad may not have turned over all his weapons. Gee—you think!
For Gods sake, only a member of the Neville Chamberlain School Of Foreign Affairs would think this agreement would be, you know, actually honored by a dictator. And Assad is a dictator. We also did this in tandem with the Russians, now public enemy number one, who had invaded and annexed Crimea from Ukraine that same year. The Obama administration called the action an uncontested arrival, and said the action was done out of weakness. Can we cue the laugh track?
It seems that even Obama officials knew this Syrian chemical weapons disarmament wasnt going to be fully complied with, but went on television stating otherwise.
We got 100 percent of the chemical weapons out they said.
"We always knew we had not gotten everything, that the Syrians had not been fully forthcoming in their declaration," they said.
But they destroyed all their “declared” weapons...
Watch their interviews carefully- they ALL make that same distinction.
Did you expect anything less from a pacifist socialist?
Obama (and Kerry and Rice) lied and people died.
Have we heard that one before?
Obama’s were all PR accomplishments, not actual accomplishments. PR accomplishments = lies.
The attempted implementation of the Obama Administration’s agenda of worldwide totalitarianism, as with all fascist agendas, was facilitated by chaos, confusion, and lies. Why would they do anything else?
Another Trump strike that turns the enemy upside down, and Assad, too. Now that yet another Obama lie is reveled expect more to follow. This is a demolition more thorough than the wrecking ball. Road Runner vs Wiley Coyote, beep-beep.
He was no more a pacifist than Mao or Stalin.
BHO/HRC/KERRY/Rice (at el) own this! It is their mess, their legacy, all theirs. Period, end of story... speaking of “story” the MSM cover up was shameful and although the MSM had no skin in the game, they withheld truth and continued to polish apples.
Cue the liberals now on facebook... But Georges Bush did it too etc...
Gotta be fake news. Susan Rice said they were successful in eliminating all known stockpiles of chemical weapons. She certainly wouldn’t lie now, would she?
Anything said by anyone on the left must be parsed several times. They said “declared” weapons/chemicals were gotten rid of. That sure leaves a lot of room for anything “undeclared”, and the faggot POS’s knowingly let them get away with it.
Syria destroyed what Assad felt like destroying, and kept what Assad felt like keeping.
Slight change, it is not that they did not bother, it is that they willfully withheld.
I rarely say this but I hope that POS terminates quickly. I can not stand ever seeing, hearing or having the press hold him up to virtue on and on.
0bama’s entire admin. was a hoax ,,,, lies , cover ups distortions , criminal acts , and a drooling media to abed his deeds . THE WORST PRESIDENT in American history .
When we see mushroom clouds over the Middle Eastwe will know the Obama administration lied about the Iranian nuclear deal

RUSH: Theres a fact-check outfit out there called PolitiFact, and its like all the other fact-check outfits. The Washington Post has one; the AP has one. These fact-check outfits exist only to discredit and impugn Trump. Well, the PolitiFact has had to retract a story they categorized as mostly true three years ago, and this story is big. Three years ago, Barack Obama and his Regime were an abject disaster. But they were claiming success after success after success, particularly in the Middle East.
One of the things that the Obama administration was celebrating was that they had completely removed chemical weapons from Syria. Obama drew that red line and the Syrians and everybody else realized the bad actor they were dealing with, and they cowered in fear, and they did remove 100% of their chemical weapons. Theres a problem now, though. Those chemical weapons were just used in an attack in Syria on Syrian citizens. So how could the Obama administration have gotten rid of all of these? The Obama You know what the claim was? They claimed they gave all of that chemical weapons stock to the Russians.
Oh, yeah! Yeah, folks! The Obama administration now the dire enemy of the Russians, victimized by the Russians gave the chemical weapon stocks in Syria to the Russians.
Which means the Russians probably gave it right back to the Syrians. But the PolitiFact story retracts a 2014 article that said it was mostly true that the Obama administration helped broker a deal that successfully removed 100% of chemical weapons from Syria. So a story that was a lie backed up by PolitiFact for three years has been retracted, and the upshot is the Obama administration did not succeed in successfully removing all of Syrias chemical weapons, as we now know because those weapons were used recently.
