Default Congress caves: Intel committees approve White House funding for Syrian rebels

Is there something in the Potomac that makes people that started out with average intelligence become just plain stupid? You'd have to be an absolute idiotic to think that arming the Syrian's is a good idea.

Congress caves: Intel committees approve White House funding for Syrian rebels
POSTED AT 7:21 PM ON JULY 22, 2013 BY ALLAHPUNDIT

Two weeks ago Reuters dropped a mini-bombshell in revealing that the House and Senate Intel Committees had frozen Obama’s funding of the Syria rebels due to the clusterfark potential of U.S. involvement there. I wrote at the time, very stupidly, that the fact that the public is overwhelmingly opposed to intervention might encourage Congress to hold the line on this one. Why enable Obama in a massively unpopular foreign-policy endeavor? Deny him the funds and then dare him to complain about it.

The lesson I take from today’s update is that there’s really no amount of public disapproval that will stop Congress from caving to the president when he wants to intervene somewhere. Sometimes they want a little more input from the White House than usual before they cut a check, but they’ll cut it eventually.

Making the world safe for Mohammedanism is a lofty goal no self-respecting global leader should shirk.
