Obama’s “Coalition of the UNWILLING” in Syria


In the New York Times today 8/30/13:

“Mr. Obama has made clear that this initiative would come from the United States, and that while he welcomed international participation, he was not depending on foreign forces for what would essentially be an operation CONDUCTED LARGELY BY THE UNITED STATES, from naval vessels off the Syrian coast.”

Obama in 2012 in comments to the press:

“For us to take military action unilaterally (in Syria), as some have suggested…..I think is a mistake.”


So what is SRT’s “Word of the Day”?:

Duplicitous: n  , pl -ties — deception; double-dealing
