By JAVIER MANJARRESCongresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D) appeared on CBS’ “Facing South Florida” Sunday morning political TV show with host Jim Defede, where she discussed the ongoing civil war in Syria, and the possibility the U.S. military intervention in the conflict.
Wasserman Schultz, who has been beating the drums of war against Syria, denounced the alleged use of chemical weapons by Assad’s regime on its people, by making a reference to the past chemical weapons atrocities made by the Nazi’s and/or other foreign countries.
We have a lot of people in south Florida who know when the government has not followed through and ensured that mass murder not take place again. I think its important that we not have any regrets.-Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D)
Defede asked if the 100k people that died before the call to war were less valued than the 1400 supposedly gassed by Assad, DWS said they weren’t of less value, but that the US needed to stand by President Obama and the World’s “Redline.”DWS stated that Obama has said that we are not going to go to war again, that prior to the use of chemical weapons in Syria,
When it comes to people that were killed through more conventional weapons of war, that would have required us to be more militarily engaged, and we are not-President Obama was absolutely adamant that we are not going to war, w are not going to insert ourselves in the midst of Syria’s civil war.-Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D)
Wasserman Schultz answered “yes” was then asked if she wanted Assad removed, echoing the Obama Administration’s call for regime change.
Defede then stated that the majority of the rebels in Syria were not Al Qaeda-linked, and referenced Senator Ted Cruz’s statement that the U.S. would become Al Qaeda’s Air Force if Obama struck at Syria. Not sure how Defede knows for fact that the majority of the rebels in Syria are not Al Qaeda affilliated, when most reports coming out of the region state the exact opposite.
Wasserman Schultz took issue with Cruz’s remark, saying that it was “just a disgusting comment.”Along with many other members of Congress, Wasserman Schultz is privy to classified information regarding the Syrian civil war and other foreign and domestic issues. Wasserman Schultz has boldly emphasized this privilege and has confidently stated that the Obama Administration has not been arming the Syrian rebels.
We have not armed the rebels, we have not gotten involved in the civil war-Rep.Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D)
Call it an oversight on her part or whatever you want to call it, but the CIA has already begun arming Syrian rebels for the past couple of weeks. (Washington Post)
