Remember When Susan Rice LIED About Chemical Weapons in Syria
The incompetence of Susan Rice knows no bounds. However, her boss Barack Obama managed to exceed it.
Rice lies pathologically. She declared Syria free of chemical weapons. Why? Because the smartest and most feared American president EVER, Barack “Red Line” Obama drew a line in the sand.
Obama and his minions spent more time covering up their incompetence than focusing on improving America. Now we learn that along with the lie of the video that sparked Benghazi, there is another lie. This one involves chemical weapons in Syria.
As The Weekly Standard reports,
take our poll - story continues below
According to a recent headline from Reuters, “U.S. intelligence agencies suspect Assad did not turn over all chemical weapons stockpile”. The evidence of the recent chemical attack in Syria makes that declaration little more than stating the obvious. However, back in January in an in interview with NPR, Obama national security adviser Susan Rice was still touting the Obama administration’s success at removing chemical weapons in Syria:
We were able to find a solution that didn’t necessitate the use of force that actually removed the chemical weapons that were known from Syria, in a way that the use of force would never have accomplished. Our aim in contemplating the use of force following the use of chemical weapons in August of 2013 was not to intervene in the civil war, not to become involved in the combat between Assad and the opposition, but to deal with the threat of chemical weapons by virtue of the diplomacy that we did with Russia and with the Security Council. We were able to get the Syrian government to voluntarily and verifiably give up its chemical weapons stockpile.
Her boss assured us that chemical weapons posed a grave threat, and thus drew the infamous “red line.”
If we can’t trust the previous administration about Benghazi or Syria, can we trust them about Iran’s nuclear program?
David French, Fellow at the National Review Institute asked this very same question.
I wonder when we'll be having this same conversation, but about Iranian nukes. https://t.co/l0jsDbK97S

Who knows what Iran received from Obama, but here’s what the Washington Beacon reported back in September 2016,
Iran may have received an additional $33.6 billion in secret cash and gold payments facilitated by the Obama administration between 2014 and 2016, according to testimony provided before Congress by an expert on last summer’s nuclear agreement with Iran.
Between January 2014 and July 2015, when the Obama administration was hammering out the final details of the nuclear accord, Iran was paid $700 million every month from funds that had previously been frozen by U.S. sanctions.
A total of $11.9 billion was ultimately paid to Iran, but the details surrounding these payments remain shrouded in mystery, according to Mark Dubowitz, executive director at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies.
In total, “Iran may have received as much as $33.6 billion in cash or in gold and other precious metals,” Dubowitz disclosed.
What will we eventually learn about all of this?
Assad was to have rid Syria of chemical weapons. However, we learn now that he bamboozled Obama.
Is anybody really surprised?
President Trump enforced anemic Barry’s red line. I’m curious to see how the Leftist media handles this.
