    If this report is true then it appears tha team Obama has finally overreached itself.
    Shades of Bush and yellow cake uranium.






    The individual in the clip, Nadeem Baloosh, is a member of an insurgent group called Riyadh Al Abdeen, which is active in the Latakia area of Syria.

    Bad intelligence maybe. Cooking the plan up is less likely.

    Possibilities abound. Take your pick or add one:
    1, Obama and Kerry have sound and accurate intell and Putin is muddying the water to save Syria from a military strike.
    2, Obama and Kerry have UNKNOWINGLY received bad intell and Putin is exploiting the situation.
    3, Obama and Kerry have KNOWINGLY received bad intell and Putin is exploiting the situation.

    How should Obama respond?
    Refer to item 1
    Should he stay the course and execute a military strike?
    Should he stand down and see hot the situation plays out?

    Refer to items 2 and 3
    Should he proceed with the military strike?
    Should he stand down and get confirmation on the Syrian Rebel claim to the attack?
    Should he state he had bad intell?
    Should he state that Putin played him?

    What is really sad is that the Obama Admin is looking like the "Not Ready For Anytime Players" on the world diplomatic stage.
    Any creditability Obama had is now in the trash bin. I bet most of the world is now treating him as a Lame Duck and is waiting for the winner of the 2016 elections. Before you Hillary fans chime in, please remember that her Benghazi performance and her association with Obama had badly damaged her creditability too.

    I doubt even Obama would "cook the books" to incite the need to attack. Now others may. Regardless, we have no business getting in the middle of two sets of our enemies to help Obama save face over "self inflicted" embarrassment. Hell, we are embarrassed enough having elected this cat twice. If we can be embarrassed, Obama can live with a little embarrassment.

    What Putin needs to do is take a look at gdp of various countries by total and population.

    From there he needs to realize there is a lot of divisiveness in our country right at the moment but one misstep on his part can change that overnight. There is no great love for Russia in this country.

    Then he needs to STFU before he pisses us off again.
