The first two paragraphs:
Roanoke Man is back. Or maybe it was just his version of the Stockholm Syndrome, but our dear president insists he didn’t build the red line ultimatum. World government did. He’d be happier if he couldn’t find Syria on the map. Or be like Sen. Ed Markey and simply vote “present” on whether we should target Damascus. And heaven forbid that he meant he’d be “present at the creation” of something meaningful (hat tip: Dean Acheson) or, as is more likely, “present at the destruction” of who knows what (hat tip: Enemy Central). The important thing is that he didn’t say what he said last August. Let’s go to the NSA videotape.
“That’s a red line for us,” he said back then, imperially, we assume, this on top of these lapidary words: “a red line for us is we start seeing a whole bunch of chemical weapons moving around or being utilized. That would change my calculus. That would change my equation.” My, my, we’re dealing with a math whiz. But that’s neither here nor there. It never happened is all you know, and all you need to know. Besides, those words were of no moment. He was speaking extemporaneously, not reading from a teleprompter, the holy grail of the Obama presidency.
And it just gets better.
