US recognizes Syria´s main
rebel group, Obama says

Associated Press, by Staff

Washington - President Barack Obama says the U.S. now recognizes Syria´s main opposition group as the "legitimate representative" of the country´s people. Obama says the Syrian Opposition Council is now "inclusive enough" to be granted greater legitimacy in the international community. The president says that level of recognition comes with responsibility, including making sure the group organizes itself effectively and is committed to a political transition that respects the rights of women and minorities. The move paves the way for greater U.S. support as the group seeks the ouster of Syrian

I try very hard never to say anything negative about a person however...:WHAT AN IDIOT!!!! Does anyone in Washington have any idea what they are doing? Supporting our enemies is not good diplomacy. This is one case in which we should stay out of the internal affairs of a country. There isn´t a good guy or a bad guy...just two groups of people, one of wheich (the rebels) will wipe out any (Christian, Jews or secular Muslem) who don´t believe the same way they do. Obama and his administration are just making another mess in the Middle East.

FTA: "The move paves the way for greater U.S. support as the group seeks the ouster of Syrian President Bashar Assad."

Let´s try to connect the dots from today. PIAPS claimed she was too sick [stomach flu] to go to Middle East and sends someone else. Many here [including myself] smell a dRATS.

We just said that we are going to send 20 F-16´s previously promised by 0bama to the Syrian Air Force [Assad's] that has 200 already. Bambi can´t possibly want to make jobs here in Texas.

Now, he says that he is backing the "Syrian Opposition Council," which is made up of fragmented "rebels." Yesterday, 0bama was saying he was opposed to sending in troops or supplying arms to "rebels." "Rebels" could easily be al Qaeda or similar terrorist organizations.

PIAPS must have wanted to protect her resume for future 2016 White House bid. [This has me confused].

Obama´s recognition of the main opposition group means:

1. He cannot send US troops into Syra to seize WMDs without providing recognition.

2. Or, Obama intends to annouce that we are going to war in Syria just an hour or two before flying off to his 3 week vacation. He will simply tell Congress to "deal with it".
3. Or, this main group is being pushed aside by al-Qaeda and Obama is trying to save them. Or, at least pretend that he tried to keep Syrian from becoming an al-Qaeda terror state.

Drudge has a report that 29 different Syrian rebel groups have pledged allegiance to the Al-Qaeda affiliated Nusra Front, a group responsible for killing U.S. troops in Iraq ..

Love those low information voters who put this communist boy back into power.

If I may say one more thing. Researching this confusing "0bama recognition" gave up this from McClatchy Newspapers from yesterday which is why announcement doesn´t make sense:

"Washington - The State Department said Monday that the Syrian rebel movement´s Nusra Front is just another name for al Qaida in Iraq, an acknowledgment that the uprising to topple President Bashar Assad is led in part by foreign Islamist extremists who fought U.S. troops for years in the bloody Iraq war. U.S. officials said they would amend this week their 2004 designation of al Qaida in Iraq as a terrorist group to include Nusra among the group’s aliases, handing the terrorist label to an Islamist organization that is responsible for many of the rebels’ recent advances against pro-Assad forces."

This is, to say the least, an interesting approach to international relations. Sometimes it seems like The Onion is writing the headlines these days. Could it all, i.e. the whole Obama routine, actually be one vast practical joke? Have a gang of comedians somehow got themselves elected in order to play a humongous prank on the American people? If so, the joke has gone on long enough. It´s time for them to come clean and admit they have been just kidding all along. The joke will be on us for thinking they were serious.

Ha anyone considered that Zippy is trying to emulate FDR?
Roosevelt had spent the country into oblivion with no positive results, and the economy recovered via WWII.
Maybe Zippy is trying to start a conflagration to mask or mitigate the financial disaster he has caused in the past four years.

#18, the entire administration is made up of just about nothing but traitors. Treasonous acts are what they do. When the citizens wake up enough they´ll pull these yard apes from office, give ´em a fair 5 min trial and then hang ´em. That how you deal with traitors and communists.

Poster 5 has it right; Hitlery is protecting herself for future runs. But she´s already in too deep.... She sent Stevens to manage the arms smuggling from Libya to Turkey, then to Al Qaeda/Mo Bro´s.

Yesterday the new Syria alliance told local news that the US was next, after Syria.... Many are already here.

Syria is Pooty Poot´s red line on the American-Arab Spring invasions. Obozo is starting WW3.... and he´s going at it with The Muslim Brotherhood as our only true ally.... vs Russia, China, India, Iran & God knows who else.

The EU & UK will attempt to remain impartial; France may in but I doubt it means much.

Washington - The CIA’s former top lawyer disputes Senate findings that the spy agency lied about its brutal interrogations of terrorists, insisting the tactics produced useful intelligence and flatly denying that the CIA misled the former Bush administration, Congress and the American public. At the same time, John Rizzo, who left the CIA as acting general counsel in 2009, said some CIA employees or contractors were overzealous in the use of the tactics but that the CIA informed lawyers at the Justice Department of the excesses. Rizzo was responsible for helping to create the legal foundation for permitting waterboarding,

General Motors Co said it would ask a U.S. court to bar lawsuits related to actions before its 2009 bankruptcy, signaling a tougher stance toward legal claims stemming from its recent recall over faulty ignition switches. GM has said it is protected from liability for claims related to incidents that occurred before it exited bankruptcy in 2009, and has taken steps to raise those issues with the court by filing motions to stay recall-related lawsuits while it asks that bankruptcy court to clarify the extent of that protection. In a filing with the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas on Tuesday, GM asked for a stay on litigation

Beijing - Chinese President Xi Jinping plans to use a purge of senior officials suspected of corruption to put his own men and reform-minded bureaucrats into key positions across the Communist Party, the government and the military, sources said. Xi hopes that removing corrupt officials and those resisting change will allow him to consolidate his grip on power and implement difficult economic, judicial and military reforms that he believes are vital to perpetuate one-party rule, said the sources, who have ties to the leadership. In the most far-reaching example of his intentions, Xi plans to promote about 200 progressive officials

According to a new study, spooning with your partner really does say something about your relationship. Researchers from the University of Hertfordshire surveyed 1,000 people and found that couples who maintained physical contact while they slept were more likely to report being happy in their relationship. An overwhelming 94% of couples who touch while sleeping said they were happy, while only 68% of couples who didn’t touch while snoozing expressed being satisfied with their relationship. Not only that, physical distance while sleeping seemed to translate into emotional distance.

New deportation cases brought by the Obama administration in the nation’s immigration courts have been declining steadily since 2009 and judges have increasingly ruled against deportations, leading to a 43 percent drop in the number of deportations through the courts in the last five years, according to Justice Department statistics released on Wednesday. (Snip) The statistics present a different picture of President Obama’s enforcement policies than the one painted by many immigrant advocates, who have assailed the president as the “deporter in chief” and accused him of rushing to reach a record of two million deportations.

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No
