If Rice and Kerry wanted to take the credit for WE getting all the chemical weapons out of Syria and WE were wrong, WE should take the rap for what has happened to the Syrian people. I will call that just another example of incompetence at its highest level.
As far as I am concerned, a big percentage of the Obama administration staff were, favors to be paid back or quotas that had to be filled. That is not the way governments should be operated unless the person is highly skilled in their fields. Kerry and Rice sure did not have the qualification to perform their jobs properly. They may have looked good on paper but that is easy to rig. This is just one example where the proof of blunders was in the chemicals.
YES, I have even criticized PDT for hiring his daughter and son-in-law. There is a huge difference. They are both supposedly highly skilled in their field and best of all they are working for free. Not to say they will not be compensated some way down the road.
One of the companies Veolia’s staff must have been another classmate of Michelle Obama’s (we remember the website for Obamacare) or a distant cousin of some political official. More than two years after the process began, on Jan. 4, 2016, the OPCW announced that Veolia, the U.S. firm contracted to carry out the final steps of the elimination process, completed its disposal of “all chemical weapons declared by the Syrian Arab Republic.”
In his State of the Union address that year, President Barack Obama declared, “American diplomacy, backed by the threat of force, is why Syria’s chemical weapons are being eliminated.” Months later, in July, on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Secretary of State John Kerry essentially declared the mission accomplished: “We struck a deal where we got 100 percent of the chemical weapons out.”
With so many incompetent people involved, who should wear the jacket for this tragedy?
Old saying; never send a boy to do a man’s job.
Let’s face it, folks, there were a lot of people in this game that dropped the ball big time. They dropped the ball and Syria dropped the chemicals on their own people. BUT, always the BIG BUT, there is NEVER any repercussions for people in politics. They just sweep their mistakes under that big political rug.
How in the name of sanity or humanization, how can anyone be so cruel/heartless as to gas their fellow-man to death, let alone their own people?
If and when Assad the Assassin is brought to justice, he should be given the same death penalty, a very slow and miserable way to die, as he gave his people.
