Kerry: Obama Drew the Red Line

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: Hey, you gotta hear this.  Do you remember this? Last week Obama went out and said, "I didn't draw that red line.  My credibility isn't on the line.  I didn't do that!  The world did that. Republicans, Congress did that." 

Let's go back and listen.  This is last Wednesday in Stockholm, Sweden.

OBAMA:  I didn't set a red line!  The world set a red line.  The world set a red line when governments representing 98% of the world's population said the use of chemical weapons are ab'orrent and passed a treaty forbidding their use, even when countries are engaged in war.  Congress set a red line when it ratified that treaty. 

RUSH:  Okay, that's last week.  That's Obama.  "I didn't set a red line.  The world set a red line.  Congress set a red line.  I didn't do it."  Kerry didn't get the memo.  That afternoon in Washington, same House Armed Services Committee hearing, Kerry, among other things, said...

KERRY:  We did ratchet up. President Obama, when he had conclusive evidence that the line that he had drawn had been crossed, he decided that was sufficient then to send a message, and he (pause) dictated that we should assist the opposition. 

RUSH: Now, Obama last week... He didn't say it once or twice. He said four times he didn't draw the red line.  Today, Kerry said, "President Obama, when he had conclusive evidence that the line that he had drawn had been crossed, he decided that was sufficient then to send a message, and he (pause) dictated that we should assist the opposition."  Well, the opposition is on its own.  The rebels are being bombed to smithereens today by Bashar Assad with conventional weapons. 

They haven't gotten anything from us.

We're not offering any assistance to the rebels at all.  They're getting creamed.  They're getting blown to bits with conventional bombs and warfare weapons and so forth, and those are the people whose side we were on.
