Leak for effect

Fire for effect has a meaning.

Leak for effect has a meaning as well. It means the President and his surrogates need to provide the media with national security secrets designed to portray the President in a particular (that is, decisive and positive) light.

President Barack Obama has signed a secret order authorizing U.S. support for rebels seeking to depose Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and his government, U.S. sources familiar with the matter said.

Why take such action (that is, the “rebel” help and not the leak)? Because it worked so well in Egypt.

Snip (from the original article):

This and other developments signal a shift toward growing, albeit still circumscribed, support for Assad’s armed opponents – a shift that intensified following last month’s failure of the U.N. Security Council to agree on tougher sanctions against the Damascus government.

So in summary: They said if I voted for John McCain, we’d have a continuation of the Bush-era unilateral, cowboy-ish, go-it-alone Presidency. And they were right!

Expect the United States to provide the Syrian “rebels” lawyers, drones, and money in a continuation of the President’s ‘lead from behind’ philosophy.

Or is it leak from behind?

About Professor Mockumental

I enjoy almost all forms of parody, buffoonery, and general high-jinks. Satire has shown itself to be an essential societal need; I therefore humbly offer my services in such a manner. I enjoy mocking the usual suspects at the New York Times (Charles Blows, Moron Dowd, and the earth is flat guy) and Washington Post (Dana Milkbag, E.D. Dijon, and David Ignoramus). There are many others as well, but sadly, there are always too many targets and too little time.
