Elizabeth O'Bagy, whose writings on behalf of the allegedly moderate Syrian opposition forces have been cited by high-ranking politicians, was fired by a neoconservative think tank for claiming to hold a degree that she does not.
In a televised response to President Obama's call for military intervention in Syria, Senator Rand Paul reminds viewers of our would-be allies' ties to terror.
After having already falsely claimed to have the authority to launch a war against Syria without congressional approval — let alone a declaration of war, as required by the Constitution — Obama is now brazenly threatening that he may attack whether Congress votes to support it or not. Amid solidifying opposition to the scheme in Congress and among the public, multiple news reports have suggested that lawmakers are set to delay the vote — or possibly even not hold it at all if Obama’s war plans look certain to be crushed. Obama, however, said he had not made up his mind on whether to listen to Congress.
With support for his proposed attack on Syria melting away, Obama has promised a full-on argument for this plan on television on Tuesday night. Who will be watching?
