Some More Stray Thoughts on Syria

In no particular order:

  • Unless there is some serious head-faking going on–and I doubt that there is–maybe it’s not such a great idea for our government to leak its operational plans. Of course, the leaking shouldn’t surprise us; the Obama administration continues to believe, apparently, that telling national security secrets out of school is a bad thing unless it is being done to make the president look good in the eyes of the general public.
  • Like all good dissents, this one will likely turn into a majority opinion relatively soon.
  • All of the sudden, illegal wars are all the rage. I am shocked–shocked!–to contemplate that this might have something to do with a Democratic president getting the kind of pass no Republican president would get in similar circumstances.
