It’s been weeks, so it’s difficult to pin down exactly which part of President Obama’s threat of a strike on Syria finally wore down Bashar al-Assad to the point where he’d consider giving up his chemical weapons to Vladimir Putin. Was it Secretary of State John Kerry’s promise that any strike on the country would be “unbelievably small”? The White House official saying it would be “just muscular enough not to get mocked“? Maybe it was Kerry’s air quotes around the word “war” and the emphatic promise that no U.S. troops would touch Syrian soil.

Nah … it was definitely Obama’s masterful psy op campaign, saying that any military response wasn’t “time sensitive” and then going golfing.
