    Obama appeals for backing to hit Syria, Europeans urge delay

    Obama appeals for backing to hit Syria, Europeans urge delay | Reuters
    It's gonna be a long week between waiting on the UN inspectors, and seeing how Obama holds up in his interviews. Moral of the story is nobody's on the presidents side.

    They are acting with lightning speed compared to Obama bringing those responsible in Benghazi to justice.

    I don't think the report will even make that determination. The report, I believe, will say only whether or not there is evidence of chemical weapons usage. It will not tell us who used them. If that is the case then the report itself is useless. But then again, it is the UN we are talking about here.

    Personally, by direct order or via Email? Probably not. Did anyone high up in the U.S. gov't authorize fast & fuzzy, non-response to Bengahzi or the IRS using targetted names to enforce tax law? You are asking for some outsider to find a direct connection from the very top of the closed gov't of a very whacked out nation (in all cases that I mentioned).

    I understand, but it is a freaking report! Why the content has not been exposed to the media by now already?

    Would an official UN report of maybe or probably be sufficient justification for Obama's "mini war"?

    I think I heard on one of the news channels that they are trying to make it a more detailed report than originally planned given the extra scrutiny it will receive now. It will probably fall short of assigning blame, but might go so far as to determine the means of delivery, possible location of origin etc etc.

    No. It is a matter of congress now anyway.
