Today Barack Obama explained how the Syrian gas massacre demands immediate action, for which there is no rush. He emphatically articulated the moral need for decisiveness, which he will pass on to Congress to debate back and forth. He gave a masterful lesson in triple talk, that will long confuse the world. He warned our enemies, with steely resolve, that our red lines are written in disappearing ink. He reassured our allies that they are truly alone. History passed by Obama today, but he was eloquent.
