Obama blends threat of attack, hope of diplomacy

WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama said in a nationally televised address tonight that recent diplomatic steps offer “the potential to remove the threat of chemical weapons” inside Syria without the use of force, but he also insisted the U.S. military will keep the pressure on President Bashar Assad “and be ready to respond” if other measures fail. Speaking from the East Room of the White House, Obama said he had asked congressional leaders to postpone a vote on legislation he has been seeking to authorize the use of military force against Syria.

So, I guess we have to accept the fact that Russia came up with this idea since Kerry proposed it off the cuff but later his people backtracked from the idea. Therefore, Obama must trust Putin (who is an ex-KGB agent) which would be a tremendous error in judgement or he is a partner with Putin and is deceiving America. This is what happens when you elect a community organizer. His foreign policy is either feckless or deceitful.

BTW, speaking of foreign policy blunders, it has been one year since the attack on Benghazi. I wonder when BHO will get to the bottom of it.
