Now this is interesting.
Of course, as the article suggests, this story could be BS. Yet at the same time, it does bear monitoring as the suspicion regarding the whereabouts of Sadam Hussein's WMD arsenal upon our arrival in Iraq was never truly resolved.
I especially like the part questioning the brilliance of the "smartest man in the room" as regards this Syrian situation. I'd say it goes equally for his entire foreign policy, even beyond the Middle East.
