    Pres. Obama's comments on CNN

    "When asked by Wolf Blitzer if the proposal for Syria to turn over their chemicals weapons to the international community for monitoring was a way to possibly avoid a military strike, the president said:"

    It’s possible if it’s real, and I think it’s certainly a positive development when the Russians and the Syrians both make gestures towards dealing with these chemicals weapons. This is what we have been asking for not just over the last week, or the last month, but for the last couple of years, because these chemical weapons pose a serious threat to all nations, and to the United States in particular. That’s why 98% of humanity said we don’t use these. That protects our troops and it protects children like the ones that we saw on those videos inside of Syria, so it is a potentially positive development.
    The silly hyperbole that Sec.State Kerry just slipped out an offhand remark about Assad giving up the chemical weapons is ridiculous. Rightwingnutjobz have repeatedly claimed, falsely, that Kerry's prepared statement was "off the cuff." That's phony.

    We're all just working for Pharoah.
