PostSubject: Putin calls Kerry a liar on Syria   Thu Sep 05, 2013 9:53 am

How is Syria a threat to us? BHO and his administration have made a hash out of Mideast foreign policy and now with their strident insistence on intervening in Syria are just making a bad situation worse. BHO has even gone so far as to distance himself from his idiotic "red line" comment (making himself look like a fool) and with an equally ignorant Congress appearing to support his self-serving military interference this country is headed toward trouble we don't need.

"MOSCOW: Russian President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday called U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry a liar, claiming he had denied that al Qaeda was fighting with the Syrian opposition in that country's civil war. Speaking to his human rights council, Putin recalled watching a congressional debate where Kerry was asked about al Qaeda. Putin said he had denied that it was operating in Syria, even though he was aware of the al Qaeda-linked Jabhat al-Nusra group.

Putin said: "This was very unpleasant and surprising for me. We talk to them (the Americans) and we assume they are decent people, but he is lying and he knows that he is lying. This is sad."

It was unclear exactly what Putin was referencing, but Kerry was asked Tuesday while testifying before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee if the Syrian opposition had become more infiltrated by al Qaeda.

Kerry responded that that was "basically incorrect" and that the opposition has "increasingly become more defined by its moderation."

When asked if a strike would make al-Nusra and other extremist forces stronger, Kerry responded, "No, I don't believe you do (make them stronger). As a matter of fact, I think you actually make the opposition stronger. And the opposition is getting stronger by the day now.
In testimony Wednesday, Kerry said that he didn't agree that "a majority (of the opposition) are al- Qaida and the bad guys." Extremists amount to 15 to 25 percent of the opposition, he said, including al-Nusra and many other groups that are "fighting each other, even now."

Putin also repeated Russia's position that any use of military force against Syria without the approval of the U.N. Security Council would be an act of aggression."

Kerry responded that that was "basically incorrect"

This reminded me of Ollie North: "I was provided with additional input that was radically different from the truth. I assisted in furthering that version."

That's another 'kerryism'....like supporting military actions in Iraq before voting against them....and this clown is now the voice for this nation on the world stage!....

Our leaders have said some stupid things over the years.

Remember the failed hostage rescue attempt in Iran? Dubbed Operation Eagle Claw, our fledgling Delta Force lost several aircraft and more importantly, eight servicemen perished.

President Carter was reported to have said it was an "incomplete success".

Sadly Carter was warned that it was the wrong time of the year (weather)....the equipment was not what was needed...correct the loss of life and aircraft didn't have to be....great example of why politics and political decisions can go horribly wrong when military operations are involved...Jimmy was wanting to be re-elected but one would have thought that a former service member would have listened to the Joint Chiefs and others...Was always taught over and over....History repeats itself...Hope that the cowh will Change what appears to be an ego driven decision on Syria....but when a politican paints themself into a lose/lose situation...the outcome is not desired....
