Are you guys wrong, hypocrites or just opportunists?
"Biden emphatically and passionately told Chris Matthews that Bush had "no constitutional authority ... to take this nation to war against a county of 70 million people unless we're attacked or unless there is proof we are about to be attacked. And if he does, if he does, I would move to impeach him." Biden was absolutely correct to point out the illegality of Bush's intentions and threaten him with impeachment."
DONALD RUMSFELD: OBAMA ADMINISTRATION HAS NOT JUSTIFIED SYRIA INTERVENTION
The Huffington Post | By Mollie Reilly | 08/29/2013
Former Defense Secretary DONALD RUMSFELD, WHO SERVED UNDER FORMER PRESIDENT GEORGE W. BUSH AND WAS A KEY PLAYER IN THE DECISIONS TO GO TO WAR IN IRAQ AND AFGHANISTAN, SAID WEDNESDAY THAT PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA HAS SO FAR FAILED TO JUSTIFY U.S. INTERVENTION IN SYRIA, TELLING FOX NEWS' NEIL CAVUTO THAT THE ADMINISTRATION'S STRATEGY IS "MINDLESS."
"ONE THING THAT'S VERY INTERESTING, IT SEEMS TO ME, IS THAT THERE REALLY HASN'T BEEN ANY INDICATION FROM THE ADMINISTRATION AS TO WHAT OUR NATIONAL INTEREST IS WITH RESPECT TO THIS PARTICULAR SITUATION," RUMSFELD SAID IN AN INTERVIEW WITH FOX BUSINESS NETWORK.
He argued that intervening in Syria would not aid the United States' key interests in the Middle East, which he believes are the relationship between Syria and Iran and Iran's nuclear program.
Rumsfeld also joined Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) in criticizing the administration over leaks on potential air strikes in Syria.
"The idea of demystifying what you're going to do for the enemy is mindless," Rumsfeld said. "I can't imagine what they're thinking, why they would want the Assad regime to have crystal clarity."
On Wednesday, Obama said U.S. intelligence had linked Syrian President Bashar Assad's regime to the lethal chemical weapons attack on civilians.
"We have concluded that the Syrian government in fact carried these out," Obama told PBS. "And if that's so, then there need to be international consequences."
However, several U.S. officials said questions remain on who ordered the strike.
The Associated Press reports:
Multiple U.S. officials used the phrase "not a slam dunk" to describe the intelligence picture – a reference to then-CIA Director George Tenet's insistence in 2002 that U.S. intelligence showing Iraq had weapons of mass destruction was a "slam dunk" – intelligence that turned out to be wrong.
A report by the Office of the Director for National Intelligence outlining that evidence against Syria is thick with caveats. It builds a case that Assad's forces are most likely responsible while outlining gaps in the U.S. intelligence picture. Relevant congressional committees were to be briefed on that evidence by teleconference call on Thursday, U.S. officials and congressional aides said.

not sure what the problem is here......you apparently didn't have a problem with Bush when we went to war so not sure why you aren't hopping on the bandwagon that Obama is going to unilaterally take us to war into Syria....actually you should be estatic since this seems to be your kind of deal.....so just WHO is the hypocrite here....I think YOU....LOL! :D
Theres, still spewing your right wing bs, I see. And as we already know that you're a butt head that voted twice for GW and once for Mitt, so you have no cred with normal folks, but you'll do great with the Fox folks.
what does it mean when you say "right wing BS"? your stupidity is what is spewing - "RIGHT WING" means AMERICA - AMERICAN VALUES and PRINCIPLES - Capitalism, sdmall govt and people PRODUCING not LEECHING!!!!!
you libs need to be deported.............
Keep, why not address what the guy that you voted for twice said in 2007 and explain how the same doesn't apply to the current situation in Libya ? The over used Libroid tactic of evade and attack the messenger just doesn't work anymore. I'm not spewing right wing anything - I'm quoting the current Vice President. Google it. There is video of it and he goes even further.
So I assume that you support the presumed attack?
I'm sure if it was in the 1% elites interest we would, but they have the country under control from top to bottom so there is no reason to attack them......they push the same stupid polices there that they do here so its all about money and nothing about helping anyone.........if people were to start voting for 3rd party candidates that's when "they" start getting nervous..... :D
These guys are pathetic. The worst part about the current situation is that we are forced to act because BO drew his line in the sand a year ago. Even an armature knows that you don't do that. This is the most inept administration in the last hundred years
