So, The Obama Administration Knew Syria Didn’t Hand Over All Its Chemical Weapons, But Lied To Us Anyway?
“Life comes at you fast. That’s all I can say right now about the Obama administration’s disastrous Syrian policy that did nothing to stop bloodshed or hold any one accountable for that matter because it probably would have led to a military decision that President Obama didn’t want to make.
In 2014, the administration celebrated its landmark accomplishment of removing Syria’s declared chemical weapons stockpile without military strikes. Russia helped us with these negotiations, which were a total failure since chemical weapons were used against the town of Khan Shaykhun located in the Idlib Province last week. The attack killed at least 80 people, including women and children.
“We got 100% of the chemical out of Syria…”
The government of President Bashar al-Assad reportedly carried out the attack, prompting President Trump to launch a military strike, hopefully signaling the start of a clean up of this mess the Obama White House left behind.

‘’There is no reason whatsoever justifying that we tolerate these proselytizing expressions in the public place’’, she declared – referring to the scenes at Clichy where Islamic prayers are said in contravention of French law – affirming that the street is a public space and that the by-products of such demonstrations would include radicalization.
For almost three weeks, since their expulsion from a public building which they had been using as a mosque – the short-term lease of which was not renewed upon expiry – members of Clichy’s 20,000 strong Muslim community have been praying in the town’s main thoroughfare in protest at the decision, believing it to be a politically inspired slight against Islam.
The large crowds which assemble in front of the town hall – particularly for Friday prayers – and the accompanying heavy police presence restrict the movement of traffic along Clichy’s main commercial street, Boulevard Jean Jaurès.”
