Yesterday, John Kerry made it sound as though an American attack on Syria was imminent. Today, in a dramatic about-face, Obama says that he first has to run it by Congress for its approval. In other words, Operation Alka Seltzer (the U.S. response to bad Syrian gas) is off, likely for good.
The question is, of course: what gives, Mr. President? And what aren't you telling us about why you seem to have changed your mind? (Okay, that's two questions, but who's counting?)
