REALITY CHECK: in 2009 Assad

REALITY CHECK: in 2009 Assad rejected a deal with the US and Saudi Arabia to build a oil pipeline through Syria. Assad instead made the deal with Iran and Russia.

The US then sent the CIA to train and FUND rebels in Turkey and Jordan to go start a "civil war" in Syria.

Didn't go well, so now Obama wants to escalade it to start bombing them to get rid of Assad. Just google CIA and Syria.

If you noticed, Gibbs didn't any anything, he just kept diverting the questions back to something Sachs didn't say. And YES the US did take part in killing of the 1000s of people by arming the insurgents..

If you disagree with me on anything you are not a real libertarian...
