  •  The "dog" we have... (5+ / 0-)

    The Obama administration, like the Bush administration before them, has made no secret of the fact that they favor regime change in Syria--they would like to see Assad overthrown and replaced by a regime more beholden to us.

    Therefore, given this "interest", they care very much about what happens in Syria and consider Assad continuing in power to be a threat.  Further, if we could examine where the Syrian rebels were getting their weapons from in the light of day, we might well find that the CIA is playing a major part.  As we know from history (see: Afghanistan, 1979-1980's), this is the sort of thing that the CIA does.

    In short, we have a dog in this fight, and it is the Syrian rebels. The declaration of emergency fits in nicely with all of that.
