I think we were misled by the Obama administration about Syria. I'm certainly happy that we didn't bomb and invade them. Maybe now we can get on the correct side in the matter, and it is not same side al Quada and the Saudis are on. I also believe that this is standard operating procedure in every administration and think that a greater issue should be made of it. Just like Bush ginning up the correct/filtered/selective arguments for attacking Iraq.

"What difference" "does it make?"
Lastly, Newsweek not only has been godawful since forever, but since earlier this year as a publication, it has been dead. Though it apparently plans a return to print.
Early voting in Georgia. On the 20th of October this old Goldwater conservative voted against both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton by casting my vote for Gary Johnson. Neither Trump or Clinton belong within a million miles of the Oval Office.
