    3. Prepared and loaded the rockets.
    4. Fired the rockets.
    5. Conducted after-actions assessments.




    I'm saying that it is a known fact that Saddam faked a WMD program. Are you claiming that Assad faked the chem use? Otherwise, there is no meaningful link between the two events.



    When you get on the Intel Committee, perhaps they'll give you the evidence. For now, that's being held back for security reasons.
    So what we have here is exactly what I said "Trust us, it was him". So if YOU want to trust that, that is the same intelligence that said Saddam has stockpiles of WMDs. So yes, I have some doubts.

    I don't trust our intelligence 100%.

    Three congresspeople show-boating? We could get that regarding evidence that the sky is blue.

    We'll see when vote time arrives.

    I'll repeat:

    Saddam faked a WMD program.

    Do you believe that Assad faked the chem use?

    Credibility is nonexistent in international politics.

    So do you have this evidence everyone wants to see but that the US refuses to show?

    The UN team was specifically NOT charged with assigning blame.

    So your conclusion, then, is that we should trust President Obama when he says something, even if we don't have evidence.

    So they were at the rocket blast site. Would not the angle of how the blast occurred hint direction of the rocket? Unless it hit the ground at a perfect 90 degree angle the blast should expand at the other direction more compared to the one from which it came from.

    My conclusion is that Obama is more credible than Putin and the Iranian regime.

    And I'll repeat:

    Saddam faked a WMD program however, the intelligence was WRONG. Therefore, the intelligence could be WRONG on WHO did the chemical attack.

    Do you belive that our intelligence cannot be wrong?
