Rush Limbaugh read several sources today (September 3, 2013) that Obama knew that the Syria rebels were planning to release sarin gas on their own people to ignite a war between the United States and Syria. This is not breaking news as a variation of this was first released on the UK Telegraph three days after the “attack”. Various sources have postulated that the whole story is a hoax where no one was killed, regular Syrian missiles hit sarin gas reserves given to the rebels by Saudi Arabia and now this account.
If any of these accounts are true, Obama should be impeached and possibly tried for war crimes. If Obama brings about World War III for his own purposes, the United States may have a civil war on its hands.
RUSH: All right. So here’s the deal. Last week, Obama reverses himself and says that he’s not gonna go into Syria. Remember, they’re using nerve gas. John Kerry goes out there, 1,500 people, 2,400 people, a lot of kids, nerve gas, sarin gas, got the proof. Look, I’m gonna get into all the hypocrisy. Yes, Kerry dining with Bashar back in 2009 and talking about what a great guy Bashar was. The bottom line is this administration is as incompetent as Jimmy Carter. There’s only one difference. If there were anybody else running this administration right now, this would be reported as incompetent and as buffoonish and as frightening at Jimmy Carter’s.
This is Jimmy Carter’s second term here. This is absolutely frightening what’s happening here. Obama with this inadvertent, trying to make himself look like a tough guy, red line comment this past summer. Well, the Syrians crossed the red line, so Obama’s obligated. And late in the week last week, he said, “You know what? I’m gonna go get congressional authority,” after maintaining he didn’t need it, maintaining he didn’t want it, maintaining he’s gonna be a tough guy, gonna act alone. He’s gonna save the people of Syria. He’s gonna make sure this Bashar guy gets what’s coming to him.
Then all of a sudden he switches gears we’re told after a walk Friday night on the White House grounds. Yes. He decided he’s gonna use congressional authority. He’s gonna go to Congress. Now, when this announcement was made — ’cause this had been discussed. I mean, the idea of congressional authority for use-of-force authorization had been discussed. There had been test votes taken by virtue of interview. At the time, there was no way Congress was gonna authorize it. Didn’t stand a prayer, which Obama knew, which the point was to blame Republicans. It was the Limbaugh Theorem in play. Obama forget about it essentially. The plan was change direction, reverse field, announce that he’s gonna go to Congress to get a use-of-force authorization, and then when the Republicans don’t give it to him, blame them for dead Syrians.
