There's a country in the Middle East against which the United States has no legitimate complaint, other than allegations that the leader of the country has chemical weapons and weapons of mass destruction. The president of the United States wants to take action against this country. There are no international allies to this strategy. Now the president has dispatched the Secretary of State to make a case to prove that this country has these weapons to justify taking military action.
Obama just isn't that different than Dubya.
