After a 45-minute walk Friday night, President Barack Obama made a fateful decision that none of his top national security advisers saw coming: To seek congressional authorization before taking military action in Syria. … Aides said the decision was made by Mr. Obama and Mr. Obama alone.
"I really don’t remember," he says, when I ask if it was the man’s heart, as reported at the time, or liver, or a piece of lung, as a doctor who saw the video said. He goes on: "I didn’t bite into it. I just held it for show."
The video says otherwise. It is one of the most gruesome to emerge from Syria’s civil war. In it, Abu Sakkar stands over an enemy corpse, slicing into the flesh.
I say until we have someone [a President] who knows what they’re doing, I say, let Allah sort it out.
