A Breaking Story: It's "MSM" Official - Obomba Is Lying About Syria -BEIRUT (AP) 04:32 E.T. 09/08/2013

YES WE CAN: We have all the evidence.
BUT BUT BUT: Nobody can see it.

AP Intelligence Writer Kimberly Dozier reported from Washington.

Associated Press writers Greg Katz in London and Richard Lardner and Bradley Klapper in Washington contributed to this report.

YES WE CAN: U.S. government insists it has the intelligence to prove it,

BUT BUT BUT: but the American public has yet to see a single piece of concrete evidence — no satellite imagery, no transcripts of Syrian military communications — connecting the government of President Bashar Assad

YES WE CAN: Yet one week after Secretary of State John Kerry outlined the case against Assad,

BUT BUT BUT: Americans — at least those without access to classified reports — haven't seen a shred of his proof.

YES WE CAN: The Obama administration, searching for support from a divided Congress and skeptical world leaders, says its own assessment is based mainly on satellite and signal intelligence, including indications in the three days prior to the attack that the regime was preparing to use poisonous gas.

BUT BUT BUT: But multiple requests to view that satellite imagery have been denied, though the administration produced copious amounts of satellite imagery earlier in the war to show the results of the Syrian regime's military onslaught. When asked Friday whether such imagery would be made available showing the Aug. 21 incident, a spokesman referred The Associated Press to a map produced by the White House last week that shows what officials say are the unconfirmed areas that were attacked.

YES WE CAN: The Obama administration maintains it intercepted communications from a senior Syrian official on the use of chemical weapons, but requests to see that transcript have been denied. So has a request by the AP to see a transcript of communications allegedly ordering Syrian military personnel to prepare for a chemical weapons attack by readying gas masks.

BUT BUT BUT:The assessment, also based on accounts by Syrian activists and hundreds of YouTube videos of the attack's aftermath, has confounded many experts who cannot fathom what might have motivated Assad to unleash weapons of mass destruction on his own people — especially while U.N. experts were nearby and at a time when his troops had the upper hand on the ground.

YES WE CAN: Rebels who accuse Assad of the attack have suggested he had learned of fighters' plans to advance on Damascus, his seat of power, and ordered the gassing to prevent that.

BUT BUT BUT: "We can't get our heads around this — why would any commander agree to rocketing a suburb of Damascus with chemical weapons for only a very short-term tactical gain for what is a long-term disaster," said Charles Heyman, a former British military officer who edits The Armed Forces of the U.K., an authoritative bi-annual review of British forces.

YES WE CAN: Testifying Wednesday before the House Foreign Affairs Committee, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel rebuffed a congressman's bid to declassify one of the key pieces of intelligence Kerry publicly cited last week: intercepted communications telling Syrian military units to prepare for the chemical strikes.

YES WE CAN!: Still, there was very little pushback from members of Congress on the government's conclusion that the Syrian regime was responsible.

YES WE CAN!!: Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., said the intelligence was "very compelling" and that senators have had more access to classified information on Syria than they've had on anything in her two decades in the Senate.

YES WE CAN!!!: Asked if that was enough to merit a U.S. military reaction, she said: "Yes, it's enough for me. I think the prohibition on chemical weapons is well-founded."
YES WE CAN!!!
YES WE CAN!!!
YES WE CAN!!!

Syria

Obama and Kerry sure showed Rand Paul; Obama's foreign policy this week skipped over libertarians and went straight to anarchy.

Obomba and buddies

are banking on the assumption that the lame public will accept the videos they keep showing as total proof that Assad was this culprit. That is no proof of who did it ... only that it did happen. Tuesday will be interesting in his last ditch attempt to sway the mericans to get behind him on more destruction. I sure hope they are either watching the new sitcoms or reality trash or have woken up from their deep sleep to not be suckered by this salesman. It hasn't been a huge anti-war protest (yet) but it is way better than it has been and outcries for non intervention have been positive.

not a fan of Feinstein or Obams

but your title is misleading

"Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the the universe."-- Albert Einstein

What part of this is not lying?

YES WE CAN: We have all the evidence.
BUT BUT BUT: Nobody can see it.

the part where

you make your title look like it is a title of a real news article that says on the AP that it is "Official" (whatever that means) that Obama is lying. I don't disagree he's lying, I just don't see any official recognition of that.

"Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the the universe."-- Albert Einstein

This sounds kind of official...

"We can't get our heads around this — why would any commander agree to rocketing a suburb of Damascus with chemical weapons for only a very short-term tactical gain for what is a long-term disaster," said Charles Heyman, a former British military officer who edits The Armed Forces of the U.K., an authoritative bi-annual review of British forces.

not trying to pick an argument

as I said, I agree with the substance of what you're saying, I just get irritated long enough to reply when I click on something that is not what hte title says it is.

"Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the the universe."-- Albert Einstein

Might want to get htat dyslexia checked out

"...something that is not what hte title says it is."

Just kidding... I do it too.

Cheap bump

yeah

it has something to do wiht how fast I can get the t and the h...I do it half the time...

"Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the the universe."-- Albert Einstein

A well fitting name

for a puppet of deceit. Feinstein, the senates Bride of Frankenstein. Whenever the gov. is under question, this lackey moans with approval of their misdeeds. I don't see any proof on the lying in this. I do see the magician's trick with the sight of hand they are notorious for. (i.e. the film that brought about the terror in Benghazi) This administration needs to be investigated and checked fully for all the lies they have produced.

I'll even get you started, from the Guardian:

Hello? America??

*drops mic*

If they are lying, what is the motive?

I understand that the Saudis have offered to pay for this war, that strikes me as interesting. Does this have anything to do with the competing gas pipelines being proposed?

Do you see how this deception is going?

This charade is being played out all to well out of their bait and switch handbook. It is slight of hand mastery. The argument has become all about "Where is the evidence?" And soon they will provide some "evidence" to appease everyone.

But the real question "Why have we gotten involved in, instigated and continue perpetuating civil war in another country?", will fall by the wayside as usual. The constitutionality of foreign entanglements is forgotten. The morality of nation building through military destruction and murder is muted.

Weak point, pound pulpit!

It's like the sermon notes left on the pulpit of a church, where there was found this notation, "Weak point, pound pulpit!" Obviously, the preacher wanted to promote a moral ideal of his own that folks listening might recognize as lacking authority, so he decided to create a loud pulpit distraction to help him slip it into his audience's trust.

The lack of clear blameworthiness in Syria has the incessant drumbeat of Obama's bully-pulpit sounding morally weaker with every desperate pounding!
