Labor Day Weekend ADHD linklets -- Mostly Syrian edition

Congressman blasts Obama for involving Congress in Syria mess.

“How is it supposed to work? How are we meant to furnish machine guns and anti-tank weapons to one set of opposition forces, without them ending up in the hands of men like the al Qaida-affiliated thugs who executed a child for telling a joke?"

Despite a 'graph that's too forgiving of Iran, this is a good explication of what's what in Syria.

Remember Kevin Sites, the embed journalist who ten years ago reported a soldier for shooting an enemy that Sites did not feel was a threat? He's a professor in Hong Kong now, and still doing foreign reportage from Afghanistan.

I bleed for this?
