On Sept. 10, President Obama let us know it was now time to act and punish – with a targeted military strike – Syrian President Bashar al-Assad for using chemical weapons on his people. Today we find out it’s fine if we wait almost a year.
Not a lot to write here. The executions continue in Syria, and photo-journalists are capturing barbaric moments in time. On July 1, I wrote about François Murad, a Catholic priest who was executed in Syria by the jihadist group Jabhat al-Nusra. Yesterday, Time Magazine posted an article and photos from an execution – one of four – captured digitally on Aug. 31.
I originally read about this story on Gateway Pundit and The Blaze, but I have not seen it in the main stream media this morning. A Catholic priest at a monastery in northern Syria (Gassanieh) was beheaded by Syrian rebel fighters directly associated with the jihadist group Jabhat al-Nusra. There is video and it has been posted online.
No line in the sand. President Obama is changing his mind when it comes to clamping down on Bashar al-Assad in Syria. Concerning the use of chemical weapons, Obama first said “don’t move them” and now it’s “don’t use them.”
