This is How It's Going to Be

I’ve been busy trying to get through the most difficult chapter of my book, so I’m late in posting this, but take a look at the kind of bullshit the Obama Administration is going to have to put up with now that we’ve decided on “engagement” with Syria:

The U.S. administration has asked Syrian President Bashar Assad to immediately stop transferring arms to Hezbollah. American officials made the request during a meeting Friday with the Syrian ambassador to Washington.

[…]

Haaretz has learned that Burns’ visit to Damascus ended unsatisfactorily for the U.S. administration. During Burns’ meeting with Assad, the Syrian leader denied all American claims that his regime was providing military aid to terrorists in Iraq, or to Hezbollah and Palestinian terror groups.

Assad essentially told Burns that he had no idea what the American was talking about.
