That possibility also occurred to me. Good copy yoyo. Really nowhere out of the realm of imagination.
Just the other day my dad (always trying to goad me) sent me a picture of a "protester" somewhere holding a placard reading "Waterboard Obama - find out what he knows" Not being one to back down from a fight I responded with "As Cheney and his lap dog discovered, you can solve all your problems with waterboarding"

I just can't get away from the notion that Pres. Obama used a bit of slight of hand (reverse psychology) to get what he wanted and did such a great job at it that Gopppers doano whether to spit of wind their watches.
KNOWING full well no matter WHAT HE DID they would reflexively demand the opposite, if he DIDN'T want to bomb Syria, the only thing he had to do was to claim that he did.
On one hand Goppers are calling him a wimp, while on the other calling him Pres. Obomber
Syria and Putin agreed to everything that Obama demanded because it was backed up by a show of force, they agree on an immediate timetable to destroy chemical weapons stockpiles … and the media is still reporting that this was an Obama failure and epic foreign policy incompetency. And like I said in an earlier post, the Bush Doctrine is dead and the GOP are now on-the-record peaceniks. Gotta love it. What's the downside??, …. Obama is sure to lose his reelection bid in 2016
Usually I'd laugh at the idea that Russia--or any nation, really, but especially Russia--could be an honest broker. But there's a remarkable bit of data that makes me hopeful. Apparently, in the discussion with the State Dept., the Russians presented an accounting of what their intelligence says about Syrian chemical weapons that is almost identical to what US intelligence says. They're not hiding anything, in other words.
To be sure, I guess you could say that the Russkies have a mole in the CIA, who told them what the CIA data shows, and then they doctored their own assessment to dovetail with that the mole told them about the CIA material.
I think I've been watching MI-5 a bit too much.
