Obama Gets Really Really Tough on Assad
August 13, 2011 - 7:29 pm
Hardly a day goes by without some “news service” or insider journalist telling us that Obama is on the verge of calling for Syrian mass murderer Bashar Assad “to go.” Hillary chimes in.
And then nothing happens. Here’s the latest:
“US President Obama and British Prime Minister David Cameron have called for an “immediate” halt to the bloodshed in Syria.
During a telephone conversation on Saturday, the two leaders “agreed on the need for an immediate halt of all bloodshed and violence against the Syrian people,” according to a White House statement.”
I don’t think you can get “Assad must go” out of that.
