Any potential goodwill from Plan B, namely that the Syrian attack may be delayed, if not cancelled, may have been put in doubt following the latest statement from Obama's spokesman Carney who said in a MSNBC interview that:
- OBAMA WILL BE SEEKING SUPPORT FOR SYRIA STRIKE TONIGHT: CARNEY
That said, Plan C also gives Obama the "out" of reconciliation, and making it seem that it will have been Obama, the great Pacifier, who managed to talk back hostilities from the edge of World War III:
- CARNEY SAYS `INTENSE' TALKS WITH ALLIES CONTINUE ON SYRIA
- CARNEY SAYS THERE'S `SOME POTENTIAL PROGRESS' IN DIPLOMACY
- CARNEY SAYS RUSSIA PLAN `POTENTIAL DIPLOMATIC BREAKTHROUGH'
In short: the chaos continues as Obama scrambles for a political solution that does not make it seem like the latest attempt to punish Syria would have crashed and burned not only in Congress but on the international arena as well.
