Daily scandals is why we're getting into war with Syria. Bill Clinton ordered Obama to get into Syria to save his Presidency, "just like I did with Bosnia and Kosovo."
And its true: Clinton's team timed all military actions to cover the front pages of the newspapers whenever a scandal was erupting. Remember the Starr report? The day it was released and guaranteed front page coverage, Clinton unleashed 100 cruise missiles at al-Qaeda jungle gyms in Afghanistan and an aspirin factory in the Sudan. Never mind that intelligence indictated that Osama bin Laden had left three days earlier and it was too late to assassinate him. No, getting Starr's report off the front page of the papers was more important.
So, Obama's trying to do the same thing now. Only difference is, there is a much bigger alternative media, and the current media is a tad upset with being spied on by Obama's team.
"Cowards & idiots can come along for the ride but they gotta sit in the back seat!"
