“Members of Congress should probe and test the administration’s evidence,
given the credibility gap created by the faulty intelligence that led
to the Iraq war, not to mention the lies and distortions peddled by the
Bush administration to sell that conflict … As forceful as the president was in making the decision to go to Congress, his case for striking Syria militarily is far from compelling.”
Assistant Professor, Middle East Political Economy, at the University of Oregon. Currently writing on the Egyptian revolution and the Syrian crisis.
