    Well it looks like the Nobel Peace Prize Winner is getting us involved in another war.
    Obama using another "secret" order for us to get involved in another civil war.
    Bypassing Congress to do it. I can't even imagine what the left would say of Bush made this kind of move.

    Obama authorizes secret U.S. support for Syrian rebels
    "President Barack Obama has signed a secret order authorizing U.S. support for rebels seeking to depose Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and his government, U.S. sources familiar with the matter said.

    Obama's order, approved earlier this year and known as an intelligence "finding," broadly permits the CIA and other U.S. agencies to provide support that could help the rebels oust Assad."

    Seems that "Secret" really doesn't mean "Secret" in Washington

    Why would liberals oppose aiding rebels? It was the "boots on the ground" while we were still involved in Afghanistan that was the problem. Were you so involved in the rhetoric you forgot that?

    Most liberals that I know are anti war for starters.
