Chemical Solution – Call Me When You”re Sober

Former National Security Advisor for President Obama Susan Rice got caught telling one heck of a chemical Solution – Call Me When You’re Sober, the Washington Post’s Fact Checker pointed out today.

Looking at comments Rice made earlier this year on the removal of chemical weapons, the Post gave her statement ‘four Pinocchios,’ signaling it’s as untrue as they come. The fact that Syrians were gassed with Sarin last week didn’t alone give Rice a bad rating by the Post, but rather that she used coded language to speak about only certain chemical weapons, as other government sources publicly noted their continued existence in the war torn state. The national security adviser said on NPR’s Morning Edition on January 16, 2017 that, ‘We were able to find a solution that didn’t necessitate the use of force that actually removed the chemical weapons that were known from Syria, in a way that the use of force would never have accomplished. Our aim in contemplating the use of force following the use of chemical weapons in August of 2013 was not to intervene in the civil war, not to become involved in the combat between Assad and the opposition, but to deal with the threat of chemical weapons by virtue of the diplomacy that we did with Russia and with the Security Council,’ she continued. We were able to get the Syrian government to voluntarily and verifiably give up its chemical weapons stockpile,’ Rice said at the time.

On its face, Rice’s statement makes it sound as if the entire country was ridded of these dangerous weapons, but her use of ‘known’ signaled a very specific definition, that of ‘declared’ chemical weapons, with Syria being the entity to declare them thus. The Post also pointed to a number of statements other government officials made, which suggested that the U. One instance came a year before Rice made her claim, with Director of National Intelligence James Clapper pointing out that chlorine continued to be used and it was deployed from helicopters, which only the Assad regime possessed. Additionally, four days before Rice appeared on NPR the Treasury Department sanctioned Syria for its use of Chlorine in warfare. In August 2014, Obama used similar language as Rice to announce Syria’s chemical weapons were destroyed, but he couched it better than she did. Today we mark an important achievement in our ongoing effort to counter the spread of weapons of mass destruction by eliminating Syria’s declared chemical weapons stockpile,’ Obama proclaimed.

But he added, ‘Serious questions remain with respect to the omissions and discrepancies in Syria’s declaration to the OPCW and about continued allegations of use. From that point on, most Obama officials used, like Rice, used ‘known’ or ‘declared’ to describe the administration’s chemical weapons achievement. The Fact Checker awarded Rice a four because: ‘She did not explain that Syria’s declaration was believed to be incomplete and thus was not fully verified. And that the Syrian government still attacked citizens with chemical weapons not covered by the 2013 agreement,’ the Washington Post said.

Live the life you are supposed to live. What would your life look like if alcohol never got in the way of your dreams again? Freedom is not just about being able to keep alcohol out of your body or keeping sober for x amount of days. Freedom is never WANTING to drink again.

For so many of us that find ourselves on a website like this, this seems almost impossible. This is not just about sobriety or abstinence. This is about going after your full potential and stepping in to your most authentic, empowered self. This is also not the end, or any terrible consequence you have to pay for bad behavior. This is the beginning of the life that you dream about living.
