Antiwar.com’s Curious Silence on Who’s Pushing for Syrian Intervention
Antiwar.com reports that “Members of the Obama Administration are confirming tonight that the National Security Council has been instructed to begin seeking options for US intervention in Syria, including what they call the ‘unlikely’ option of setting up a no-fly zone.”
My comment (which must be approved by the site admins before it will appear publicly):
If Antiwar had tried a little harder “to squeeze the truth from the information they can get” they would find that the “critics on Capitol Hill” who “accuse the Obama administration of being slow to react to the quickening deterioration of the security situation in Syria” are the likes of Tony Badran, a research fellow at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, who appears to be concerned that Washington is “still pussyfooting.”
Well, we all should know whose interests the FDD serves. Hint: it’s the same country whose think tanks, NGOs, and friends in government and media have been pushing the US to intervene to “protect” the Syrian people from the start of this crisis – a crucial and undeniable fact which has scarcely been reported on this supposedly “non-interventionist” site.
If anyone has any information that would help explain this curious silence, I would be very interested to hear from you.
