Al-Assad Calls Out Obama: ‘You’re Weak!’

Uh-Oh, he went there.

In an interview with a French publication, Syrian Dictator Bashar Al-Assad called out President Obama, calling him weak in the face of pressure within his country.

“If Obama was strong, he would have said publicly: ‘We have no evidence of the use of chemical weapons by the Syrian state.’ He would have said publicly: ‘The only way to proceed is through UN investigations. We therefore refer everything to the Security Council.’ But Obama is weak because he is facing pressure from within the United States,”

As Obama delays, Al-Assad gets in his pot shot…but does he have a point? Is Obama weak? Let us know.

Syrian President Bashar Assad called President Barack Obama “weak” in a new interview with a French publication on Monday, saying he is facing pressure from within the country.
“If Obama was strong, he would have said publicly: ‘We have no evidence of the use of chemical weapons by the Syrian state.’ He would have said publicly: ‘The only way to proceed is through UN investigations. We therefore refer everything to the Security Council.’ But Obama is weak because he is facing pressure from within the United States,” Assad said, according to a translation of his interview with Le Figaro in The Telegraph.

In excerpts of the interview released early Monday, Assad called on the United States to offer proof of chemical weapons use by his government, saying it had failed to do so thus far.

“Whoever accuses must offer proof. We have challenged the United States and France to offer a single proof. Mr. Obama and Mr. Hollande have been unable, including before their peoples,”Assad said in the exclusive interview with Le Figaro, according to a translation by POLITICO.

Assad would not say whether his army has chemical weapons, but he did question the idea of Syria using such weapons in a place its own soldiers could be affected.
