This week’s chemical weapons attack in Syria put a HUGE spotlight on the lies and incompetence of the Obama Administration, and in particular of Susan Rice.
It was just a few months ago that Rice boasted over how Obama had succeeded in eliminating the threat of chemical weapons in Syria. Except, he hadn’t.
Here’s what Rice had to say in an interview with NPR in January:
“We were able to find a solution that didn’t necessitate the use of force that actually removed the chemical weapons that were known from Syria, in a way that the use of force would never have accomplished. …We were able to get the Syrian government to voluntarily and verifiably give up its chemical weapons stockpile.”
Rice was responding to criticism over Obama’s failure to use military force when his own “red lines” were crossed by the Syrian regime in 2013.
Back in 2013, Obama and then-Secretary of State John Kerry celebrated the deal they had purportedly made to remove the threat of chemical weapons in Syria.
From Washington Free Beacon:
“It turns out we are getting chemical weapons out of Syria without initiating a strike,” Obama said.
“We struck a deal where we got a hundred percent of the chemical weapons out,” then Secretary of State John Kerry said.
The problem is that we now know Obama, Kerry and Rice were 100% WRONG.
And the only possibilities are that they are really just that stupid, or that they LIED to America and the rest of the world about Syria “verifiably giving up its chemical weapons stockpile.”
Fortunately, we now have a president who isn’t playing games.
