Assad a “reformer”?

The Secretary of State clarified the differences between Libyans and mercenaries killing Libyans, and Syrians and Iranians (and Lebanese?) killing Syrians:

Clinton said the elements that led to intervention in Libya — international condemnation, an Arab League call for action, a United Nations Security Council resolution — are “not going to happen” with Syria, in part because members of the U.S. Congress from both parties say they believe Assad is a reformer.

Thanks for clearing that up. What a train wreck of a foreign policy, when the Secretaries of State and Defense can’t get on the same page on a news show. Do these senior officials spend their free moments trying to figure out how to get as far away as possible from this mess?

The one clear message to us of the turmoil is we ought to be developing our domestic energy resources as quickly as possible. Which is the one thing that will not happen with this crew in charge.
