Obama Set A Red Line


In an absolutely stunning answer to a reporter's question in Stockholm, Sweden today President Obama claims he did not set a red line with Syrian President Assad over the use of chemical weapons. Despite multiple times either using the words "red line" or making a more threatening statement to Assad saying, "if you make the tragic mistake of using these weapons there will be consequences and you will be held accountable."

I don't know about you, but sure as the sun comes up every day, that sounds like a big fat line painted stop sign red. But wait, hold on, not to Obama that isn't a red line, it must have been an accidental red chalk line he made when he inadvertently dropped his toolbox full of lies. As he has done multiple times in the past, President Obama once again tried to pass blame to "the world" and to "Congress" for setting a red line. Oh heavens no, Barack Obama did not set a red line. Now the rest of you go back to your government Kool Aid induced coma and let the elites take care of this.

But wait just one minute, we have video proof Obama is lying. First watch the video of the Reuters reporter's question and then watch Obama's, "who me I didn't set no red line" answer. Then watch the 2 videos after that and uncover the truth to see what Obama really said about a red line. I'm sure we will see none of this on the network news now will we?

The partial transcript of the first video is below:

STEVE HOLLAND, REUTERS: Have you made up your mind whether to take action against Syria whether or not you have a congressional resolution approved? Is a strike needed in order to preserve your credibility for when you set these sort of red lines? And were you able to enlist the support of the prime minister here for support in Syria?

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Let me unpack the question. First of all, I didn't set a red line. The world set a red line. The world set a red line when governments representing 98 percent of the world's population said the use of chemical weapons are abhorrent and passed a treaty forbidding their use even when countries are engaged in war. Congress set a red line when it ratified that treaty. Congress set a red line when it indicated that in a piece of legislation titled the Syria Accountability Act that some of the horrendous thing that are happening on the ground there need to be answered for. And so, when I said, in a press conference, that my calculus about what's happening in Syria would be altered by the use of chemical weapons, which the overwhelming consensus of humanity says is wrong, that wasn't something I just kind of made up. I didn't pluck it out of thin air. There was a reason for it. That's point number one. Point number two, my credibility is not on the line. The international community's credibility is on the line. And America and Congress' credibility is on the line because we give lip service to the notion that these international norms are important.

Yes, President Obama, you most certainly did set a red line, right in this video below:

And another threatening video from the Commander In Chief that has ZERO credibility:
