Obama Admin Concludes Assad Crossed ‘Red Line’ In Syria, Will Now Offer Military Support To Syrian Rebels

Interesting timing. Before the Benghazi, IRS, AP-Snooping, Rosengate, Did-Holder-Lie and NSA scandals, Obama remained unconvinced that Assad had used chemical weapons. Now, however, the kitchen heat may be forcing Obama to cook up something new. Considering all the revelations that have been unfolding recently with respect to Obama’s Syrian rebel allies, it looks to me like we’re reading the ingredients of a recipe for disaster, and one that may soon go from bad to worse …

By STEVE CHAGGARIS, STEPHANIE CONDON, CBS News – “The Obama administration has concluded that Syrian President Bashar Assad’s government used chemical weapons against the rebels seeking to overthrow him and, in a major policy shift, President Obama has decided to supply military support to the rebels, the White House announced Thursday.

‘The president has made a decision about providing more support to the opposition that will involve providing direct support to the [Supreme Military Council]. That includes military support,’ Deputy National Security Adviser for Strategic Communication Ben Rhodes told reporters.

President Obama has repeatedly said that the use of chemical weapons is a ‘red line’ that, if crossed, would be a ‘game changer’ for more U.S. involvement in the Syrian civil war.

‘The President has been clear that the use of chemical weapons – or the transfer of chemical weapons to terrorist groups – is a red line for the United States,’ said Rhodes in a separate written statement.

‘The President has said that the use of chemical weapons would change his calculus, and it has,’ he continued.

In terms of further response, Rhodes said, ‘we will make decisions on our own timeline’ and that Congress and the international community would be consulted.  Mr. Obama is heading to Northern Ireland Sunday for a meeting of the G8 group of nations; Rhodes indicated the president will consult with leaders of those countries.” Read more.
