Marco Rubio Doesn't Think It Was a Coincidence

[I]t's concerning that the secretary of state, 72 hours ago or a week ago, last Friday, said that the future's up to the people in Syria on what happens with Assad. In essence almost nodding to the idea that Assad was gonna get to stay in some capacity," Rubio said on the show "AM Tampa Bay."

"I don't think it's a coincidence that a few days later we see this," Rubio concluded.


Dozens died in an attack on Tuesday that activists said was committed by Assad's regime. The U.S. has also placed blame on Assad for the attack. Last week in Turkey, Tillerson said, "I think the status and the longer-term status of President Assad will be decided by the Syrian people."

Even if it's not a coincidence (and it's not likely that it is), I don't know that we can draw an accurate conclusion on who made sure it happened. It does seem rather curious that the USG couldn't wait until an investigation into the gassing could be made.

And are we now going to get to hear Old Lard Ass make some more snide remarks about "Little Marco"?

...but hey, do what you will anyway.
