If that is the case, it is within Obama's powers to do something. In a strange way, I almost think this is poetic justice. What I mean by that is that back in the days of JFK, LBJ, and Nixon there was definite abuses of POTUS war powers and so the War Powers Act trimmed that back. Along comes "peaceful islam" on 9-11 and because of that Congress and the Supreme Court gave the POTUS more powers again. And here we are about to lay waste to an islamic country without Congress giving an OK. It reminds me of the expression "she was dressed like she wanted it". And that's not to say Syrians committed 9-11; but they certainly danced in the streets afterwards.

    I can't find a confirmation of the Syrians celebrating 9/11. Have you got something for us?

    The false narrative that "Bush lied " has been thoroughly debunked on this forum.

    If that is the case, then he is less intelligent than even I could have imagined.

    It's been debunked all over the world. It only remains in the minds of those that refuse to leave the partisan plantation.

    Exactly. There is a difference between being incorrect and lying. A lie in this instance would be that Bush knew there were no WMDs but used it as a predicate for war anyway. There is no evidence for this whatsoever.
