   I confess that I video taped today's show of  Face the Nation.  Bob Scheiffer had Mike Rogers (R. Michigan) on his show today.  Representative Rogers was appointed as Chairman of  the House Intelligence Committee in 2011 and "is a national leader on national security policy", according to his website.  So, he serves in the United States House of Representatives, representing Michigan's Eighth Congressional District.

   Prior to being elected to The House of Representatives, Rep. Rogers was a commissioned officer in the U.S. Army through the ROTC at the University of Michigan.  He then served as an FBI special agent.  He was first elected to Congress in 2001.  Thank you, Sir, for your service to our Country.
   Today, the show was about the ramifications on inaction on the part of the U.S. regarding President Obama's "red line" to Bashir Assad.  Rep. Rogers verbalized his concern that inaction after the President drew the "red line" would send Iran, North Korea, and others a negative message concerning our leadership on the world stage.  Mr. Scheiffer concurred with that assessment. 
   I guess these guys have not heard what America is saying about President Obama's "red line".  As far as that goes, maybe they have not listened to ANYTHING America is saying about President Obama and his Administration. 
   His you know that he is marching Susan Rice out to brief Congress on what the President wants to do and why?  Can you imagine?  Susan Rice?   Maybe this is why Americans are saying, "no" to President Obama.  He had Susan Rice try to convince America that an obscure video was the cause of death for  Ambassador Stephens, Tyrone Woods, Sean Smith, and Glen Doherty in Benghazi last year.  She even went on Face the Nation to do it!  Again, I say the Obama Administration has a credibility problem.
   Where is his support from leaders of other nations?  This guy said he was going to "make the world love us" after  "President Bush alienated them".  Who will stand with President Obama?  All I hear are crickets.
   I have been concerned that most of the elected officials in Washington have either been on drugs or "playing poker on their phones" that has resulted in their being too distracted to focus on their jobs.  Going back to the Washington Post piece on October 19, 2012, I also have to consider that the information they receive may be faulty:

CIA documents supported Susan Rice’s description of Benghazi attacks

By David Ignatius,October 19, 2012
The Romney campaign may have misfired with its suggestion that statements by President Obama and U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice about the Benghazi attack last month weren’t supported by intelligence, according to documents provided by a senior U.S. intelligence official.
“Talking points” prepared by the CIA on Sept. 15, the same day that Rice taped three television appearances, support her description of the Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. Consulate as a reaction to Arab anger about an anti-Muslim video prepared in the United States. According to the CIA account, “The currently available information suggests that the demonstrations in Benghazi were spontaneously inspired by the protests at the U.S. Embassy in Cairo and evolved into a direct assault against the U.S. Consulate and subsequently its annex. There are indications that extremists participated in the violent demonstrations.”
The CIA document went on: “This assessment may change as additional information is collected and analyzed and as currently available information continues to be evaluated.” This may sound like self-protective boilerplate, but it reflects the analysts’ genuine problem interpreting fragments of intercepted conversation, video surveillance and source reports.

   I am sorry, Rep. Rogers.  I cannot see any support for this President to go to war with Syria.  America's biggest concern, at this point, is not what terrorists all over the world think of this country's resolve not to bomb Syria; America's biggest concern is WHO IN THIS ADMINISTRATION HAS THEIR FINGER ON OUR NUCLEAR BOMBS?  It is sad when we are more concerned about what our own government is doing than what world terrorists are.
