Obama Double-Backpedal Liveblogging
Well, this one should be interesting. As I understand it, Obama will be trying to simultaneously weasel out of his initial stance of “We must punish Assad for using chemical weapons – which he totally, totally did, you guys – but not so much that we actually affect the outcome of the rebellion” and avoid getting backed into a corner by Assad and Putin calling John Kerry’s bluff by offering to turn over Syria’s chemical weapons to the UN.
Should be eleventy-dimensional chess at its finest. Or an incoherent mess – not that our poor three-dimensional brains would ever be able to tell the difference.
