Skepticism Runs High On Capitol Hill
After Classified Syria Briefing

BuzzFeed, by Kate Nocera

Original Article

Posted By:drive, 9/1/2013 10:00:02 PM

WASHINGTON— Members of Congress who attended a classified briefing Sunday remained highly skeptical of voting to approve a military strike on Syria, and said the administration would need to be more specific about the exact scope of the attacks in the coming days. Congress is not set to reconvene in Washington until Sept. 9th, but roughly 60-70 representatives and several senators came to D.C on Labor Day weekend to attend the briefing. The meeting came a day after President Barack Obama announced he would seek congressional authorization for the attacks. “I’m still very skeptical about the President’s proposal. It is not clear

All side have Sarin gas in Syria. The question is whether al-Qaeda did this attack to use our Air Force for their and Saudi Arabia´s designs, or not.

All this preparation and shuffling of so called intelligence. Republicans were always lectured by liberals about relying on the UN in cases of attacks by foreign powers on each other.

Now we have a super leftist in the Oval office and if left alone he would have bombed Syria, because Syria was bombing the Muslim Brotherhood revolutionaries who were bombing civilians. I just don´t believe any so called evidence about Assad gassing his own people, because those making the charges are worse than Assad. Sending Long Face out there to spread your rumors isn´t the smartest thing to do. His past is rife with lies.

Granted there was a gas attack in Syria. Has this Administration proven that the attack was by Assad, I don´t see any evidence of that. This is the type of action that terrorists take when trying to gain support.

Will this Administration do the right thing, let me just say Benghazi, and that is only the tip of the iceberg. Stop lecturing us and go to the UN. Follow your own advice for once.

One more thing... get you foot off of that Historic desk, you foul mannered, spoiled example of the old axiom that power corrupts. We don´t trust you front man Kerry either.

It is VERY clear: President "Bush did it"," I vote present" etc. is setting Congress up so he will again be able, in his own mind at least, to shift blame. If Congress votes no, our noble President, who paid NO attention to Congress with his hundreds of recess appointments and regs in the past years and who earlier stated he does not NEED Congress to launch an attack, will say all his good intentions were blocked by that Body. If they vote yes and things go wrong, he will blame Congress for THAT. Meanwhile, a two day in and out with a few missiles accomplishes absolutely nothing beyond an attempt to shied Obama via his red line comment......and NOBODY believes it will. Israel will face retaliation if we bomb as well, but what the heck........it´s only Israel. What an absolute AMATEUR.

If Obama is really a "Christian", he should know that the first task of the rebels is to burn Christian Churches and murder as many Christians as they can. The world-wide persecution of Christians continues unabated but seriously aided by U.S. funding.

That Assad had chemical weapons has been known for years. That he used them stretches back before June.

Why is the Admin just now getting around to deciding what to do? Doesn´t anyone here have foresight and the ability to plan for contingencies?

Remember when both Clintons, Pelosi, Reid, Kerry and many others made speeches about intelligence showing that Saddam had WMD´s? And remember when they conveniently forgot all about that intelligence when they decided to use Iraq to "get Bush"? Well, I´d say it´s about time we used their own tactics against the demoncrats.

This time zippy, unlike Bush, really is trying to go it alone. Plus, I don´t know why anyone would believe anything that this administration says. This is the perfect time for the Republicans to say to the dems and the WH, "You told the world that Bush lied about Saddam´s WMD´s, so why should WE believe YOU now? Get involved in Syria´s civil war? He!! no! Oh, and by the way, where exactly did Assad get his WMD´s"?

You know what they say about payback. It´s long past time for some serious payback.

Because of the feelings from their constituents, the members of Congress will not have qualms about voting this resolution down. The Republicans, for their part, would not mind having him dangling out there without support.
This man is in a mess of trouble and Axelrod better have some good input to offer.

Right #1, Bamboozler is getting some good mileage out of the Syria debacle. The Syria news cycle will eclipse everything else such as all the scandals and his miserable failure in Egypt for at least as long as Congress is in recess and then some.

Correct #11, It´s highly suspect the lightweight administruation is all gun ho, just when their reign is hitting rock bottom. "We suck, lets´ go to war!". ha ha.

Kerry is certainly a programmed robot lately. Oh what a statesman he is! lol. A makin´ that case. After seeing him on the second run of Fox News Sunday at 140, I was laughing pretty hard. Red Bull energized perhaps? Too bad most of us would not buy a used car from him or walk across a cross walk with him sitting in a yielding car. Otherwise he is quite believable. /s off.

I still believe that Obama just loves this
misdirection so that the multiple scandals are no longer in the news, much less in the headlines. He could care less about which Islamic group rules any Mid East Nation,as long as they are not under sectarian direction. Obviously many folks have forgotten his upbringing, where he was taught Colonialism is a bad thing and he wants the Muslims to be in charge in as many Countries as possible.

The Congress should not vote one way or the other on this. Obama said that if they vote ´no´, he still has the authority to call for a strike, and may do so. If he needs the authorization, then he is announcing in advance that he may ignore what the Congress says and violate the law. If he does not need the authorization, then why vote. Why should Congress let itself be used by Obama?

If obama says he "can strike in a day, a week, or a month" why did a big group of Congress cut their holiday short and show up for work on a Sunday? Something smells in Washington, over and above the usual.

Everything out of Pinnochio´s mouth is a lie, a half-truth or a CYA measure. This all smells of DESPERATION. The longer it drags out, the worse he looks. It works in our favor though because after the strike on Syria, WW3 will follow.

Since they are directly in the line of fire, I would ask Israel what they would do in this situation. They at least are closer to the situation and have probably the best intelligence apparatus there is. And no, I don´t support an attack of any kind. Ask yourself the question "Who will an attack benefit"? Is darn sure isn´t the US.

Obama huffed and puffed and made empty threats and now he´s crying Mommy

Some Syrians killed some other Syrians ( allegedly ) and now Obama wants Congress to order a
missile strike to kill more Syrians.
Do I have this right ?
Obama wants to completely destabilize the Mideast based on hair samples collected
by some Syrian EMTs .
Obama has shamelessly shown more concern for the 1400 dead Syrians than he ever has
for the 1,904 American flag draped coffins that have returned to Dover AFB
since he was inaugurated.
Children are routinely shot and murdered in Chicago and Barry shrugs.
He traipsed around Africa with his wife and daughters and ignored the humanitarian disaster in Darfur.

Since destabilizing Libya against the Israelis wishes-they had a non-aggression aide deal with Ghaddafi (how quickly the spelling of his name fades?) They also have an understanding with Syria so why do we want to help the rebels who pal around with al Qaeda and the Mussie Bros?

And the Saudis who keep us tied to their skirts with oil and some cooperation? We already removeed the Saddamn threat and they send in that goofball Iman who we no longer see on daily TV--the slums of Baghdad one? probably in the cabinet.

Let Russia secularize them. You cannot help people who will not help themselves which is a pity because the weak, the women and children take the brunt of it, but Harry S Truman made a precedent setting choice--American blood of the many million military people to fight a ground war or the aggressors blood even if civilian.

The Mussies attacked American and other countries people in world trade center with no care for civilian casualties. The world was just annoyed that we took it less than lightly. The ones who helped varied but valiant Poles then got shafted by the Prez.

ROME - Pope Francis washed the feet of 12 disabled and elderly people Thursday - women and non-Catholics among them - in a pre-Easter ritual designed to show his willingness to serve others like a "slave." Francis´ decision in 2013 to perform the Holy Thursday ritual on women and Muslim inmates at a juvenile detention center helped define his rule-breaking papacy just two weeks after his election. It riled traditionalist Catholics, who pointed to the Vatican´s own regulations that the ritual be performed only on men since Jesus´ 12 apostles were men.

That is one amazing coincidence—almost as amazing as those soldiers who mysteriously materialized in Crimea turning out to be Russian. In a few moments, Snowden became part of a Soviet-style propaganda machine, even though he clearly views himself as a public-spirited crusader. After Snowden leaked all those NSA documents to the Guardian and the Washington Post, which shared a Pulitzer Prize this week, he fled to Hong Kong and then to Moscow, which was more than happy

In Detroit´s unfolding saga, the only innocent victims are city residents. So if there is any case for a Motown bailout, it is to make the city more livable for them. However, that seems to be the main goal of neither the Democratic White House nor the state´s Republican governor -- both of whom have come up with nifty new schemes to shovel taxpayer largesse to city retirees. Just two weeks ago, Emergency Manager Kevyn Orr had been threatening to put a buzzsaw to the city´s $3.5 billion unfunded pension liabilities to lop off savings to “invest” in city services.

Most voters think the White House is trying to cover-up what happened in Benghazi and want Congress to continue to investigate the administration’s handling of the attack on the U.S. consulate there that killed four Americans. That’s according to a Fox News poll released Thursday. Sixty percent of voters want lawmakers to keep investigating what happened in Benghazi. That’s down from 65 percent who felt that way in November, and a high of 73 percent in early June 2013.

President Obama today sought to make light of a stinging public rebuke from House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, who took the president to task for disparaging GOP lawmakers while seeking to make a deal on immigration reform. Obama, the No. 2 House leader said yesterday after a phone conversation with the president, should “stop his partisan messaging and begin to seriously work with Congress.” Hours before the president called Cantor, the White House had issued a statement in which Obama ripped House Republicans for favoring “extreme measures” and “seemingly preferring the status quo of a broken immigration system over meaningful reform.” “You’re always

Secretary of State John Kerry evidently runs a tight ship, given the paucity of leaks that emerge from his office. So we know he is organized and disciplined. He is also an energetic risk-taker, jumping into high-wire negotiations with Iran, and forcing the Israelis and Palestinians to the negotiating table -- enterprises that could likely end in failure and ruin his reputation. This is a man with character. By contrast, his predecessor at State, Hillary Clinton, appeared to take few risks and has been accused of using the position of secretary of state merely to burnish her resume in preparation

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

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

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already

Glen Campbell has been suffering from Alzheimer´s for over three years, but the Grammy-winning singer, 78, has recently moved into a facility, PEOPLE has confirmed. "He was moved to an Alzhemier´s facility last week," says a family friend. "I´m not sure what the permanent plan is for him yet. We´ll know more next week." The "Rhinestone Cowboy" crooner first opened up about having Alzheimer´s to PEOPLE in an exclusive 2011 interview. Campbell and his fourth wife, Kim Woolen, decided to go public with the news because Campbell hoped to embark on a final farewell live tour. The couple wanted his

The first step is admitting… It was a simple question to someone accustomed to much tougher ones: What was her proudest achievement as secretary of state? But for a moment, Hillary Rodham Clinton, appearing recently before a friendly audience at a women’s forum in Manhattan, seemed flustered.(Snip)So…no definitive successes and some clear-cut failures. And that’s the generous New York Times assessment. The Democrat fantasy story about Mrs. Clinton paints her as strong and accomplished on her own. In reality, this is a woman who is professionally defined almost entirely by two men in her life, both of whom happen to have

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups. We know something else, too. These investigations
