President Obama defended his tentative deal with Russia to confiscate Syria's chemical weapons as critics Sunday accused the president of caving to Russian leader Vladimir Putin.
Don't count Rep. Mike Rogers, chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, among those applauding the tentative deal between the Obama administration and Russia over chemical weapons in Syria.
The chairman of House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence suggested Thursday that Russia’s plan to disarm Syria of its chemical weapons was prompted by Moscow’s fear of being exposed as a supplier of the illegal arsenal.
EXCLUSIVE — As President Obama ran to election victory last fall with claims that al Qaeda was “decimated” and “on the run,” his intelligence team was privately offering an assessment that the terror network was shifting resources to emerging spinoff groups in Africa that posed fresh threats.
