If Assad isn’t careful Obama will go lawyerly

To follow up on Steve’s hilarious post describing security levels in various European countries in light of the Syria crisis, I’d like to add include the Obama administration.

Reportedly, it has raised the magnitude of its planned response to Assad’s chemical attack from “nuanced” to “tailored.” Soon, though, it may raise the level to “calibrated.” For now, Obama intends to hold his highest level of response, “lawyerly,” in reserve.
