    •  It's not an equivocation? (0+ / 0-)

      There was a military coup in Egypt.  Even if we thought it necessary, there was a military coup in Egypt. The President has equivocated on calling it that in order to avoid the rule of law and continuing sending US taxpayer dollars to the Egyptian military, which comprises 37% of their military budget.

      One year ago the President said that use of chemical weapons was a red line, and if crossed it would be a game changer as to US policy.

      We have now had the use of chemical weapons 3 times with no response except to call for more investigations of what we already know. Gross equivocation.

      There's no call for an HR of the truth.
