A lot of members of the Barack Obama administration — including the former president — are walking around with egg on their faces after Syria’s chemical attack this week killed scores of its own citizens — including children.

After Obama’s embarrassing reversal of his own Syrian chemical weapons red line, his administration needed a win to restore public confidence.
It came in the form of a peaceful resolution whereby Syria agreed to remove their entire stockpile of weapons of mass destruction — including chemical weapons — and Russia would make sure the Assad regime lived up to that agreement.
At the time, administration officials claimed that all chemical weapons had been removed.
“It turns out we are getting chemical weapons out of Syria without initiating a strike,” Obama said, beating his chest.
“We struck a deal where we got a hundred percent of the chemical weapons out,” then-Secretary of State John Kerry chimed in.
But Tuesday’s delivery by air of a suspected nerve gas in northwestern Syria threw those claims into its ash heap of other lies.
While Obama administration officials may want the public to forget those claims, The Washington Free Beacon — and video recordings — won’t let them get away with it.
Pop some corn, pull up your favorite easy chair and enjoy the show.
Social media wouldn’t let them forget either.

Yes, Democrats jumped the gun on that as well, and Rep. Maxine Waters continues to jump the gun on Trump’s impeachment to this day.
