Susan Rice, the shinning beacon of truth, seems to have preemptively dug her ditch a little bit deeper.
This week has been bad enough for her; with the revelation she unmasked the Trump team through intelligence surveillance.
Now… it has been unearthed that she said back in January of this year that the Obama Administration successfully removed chemical weapons from Syria.
After Assad just hit his own people in Idlib this week with sarin gas (fyi, this chemical weapon was developed by the Nazis), this claims seems pretty insane, doesn’t it?
Check out what she told NPR:
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.
Try telling that to the Syrian children who suffocated to death from this week’s attack!
UPDATE: U.S. intelligence agencies suspect Assad did not turn over all chemical weapons stockpile – intelligence official
