    Kerry had said that anything Assad could do to avoid a strike was a hypothetical? In other words, any scenario to avoid a strike is hypothetical - ie non-existant?

    I think you would have been quite upset at that answer.

    •  Why say anything at this point? (0+ / 0-)

      He should keep his mouth shut until Obama's speech is over and Congress has acted one way or the other.

      Calling other DKos members "weenies" is a personal insult and therefore against site rules.

          And he doesn't have to answer. In fact, that happens more often than not.

          •  And it wasn't really much of an answer. (0+ / 0-)

            It wasn't news. It wasn't some new red line. It wasn't an ultimatum.  

            It was just a "sure, if he gives up his weapons." Well, duh. Of course.

            So when news organizations or diarists get all up in arms like this was actually something new or particularly meaningful, it is misplaced outrage IMO. It was essentially nothing - a fairly neutral answer to a question by a journalist. Nothing whatsoever had changed or was new by this answer.
