Exposing Obama's lies about fighting ISIS

"Beyond Americans' willful denial and refusal to recognize Syria and its people, is the fact that of all countries in the Middle East, no one has done more to fight extremist terrorists on the ground than Bashar al Assad and the Syrian military."
President Obama's much celebrated ISIS(L) 'strategy' speech came on Tuesday night amid great fanfare and even greater debate. Sure, he outlined a strategy, but the President has been harboring another hidden agenda - one you won't get a straight answer on.

Obama rode a wave of public outrage and fear into Tuesday's address, mostly due to the extensive media coverage of the alleged murders of two American journalists, James Foley and Steven Sotloff - a drama played out on Youtube of all places. The beheadings were important in this process because they set the US military media campaign into hyper-drive. The timing in the run-up to the 9/11 anniversary seemed uncanny.

Obama's public agenda is the one you can see on the table, one where the US officials promise to "degrade and destroy ISIS". Sounds great. Who can disagree with that?

Then there's the hidden agenda, somewhere under the table, and not really up for rational debate. That's probably because it's highly illegal and has something to do with what started the ISIS crisis to begin with.

This is how Obama plans to sneak back in and re-ignite with last year's failed bombing campaign that never was in Syria. He explains, "I have made it clear that we will hunt down terrorists who threaten our country, wherever they are. That means I will not hesitate to take action against ISIL in Syria."

Put aside for a minute that any US airstrikes conducted inside Syria without consultation from the Syrian government would be classed by international law and perhaps even by the UN as an act of war against Syria. Why are US politicians, bureaucrats and paid media pundits all guarding their Syrian option so closely? I thought this was an ISIS crisis, not a Bashar al Assad crisis?
