The Watercooler ~ Senate Hearing on Syrian Conflict Open Thread*

History in the making...

I couldn’t resist watching the Senate hearing regarding President Obama’s request for Congress to authorize a “limited military operation” to attack Syria.

General Dempsey, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Chuck Hagel, Secretary of Defense and John Kerry, Secretary of State are on the hot seat doing their best to defend their CiC’s recent burst of interest in atrocities occurring in Syria.

Penny for your thoughts open thread.

*With all due respect to our esteemed front-pager Moe Lane’s sage advice for Congresscritters to vote their conscience, it’s really, really, really hard to set aside the hypocritical nature of this hearing to figure out the right thing to do.
