Obviously a lie, since it came from a Swift Boat veteran.

remember that girl in front of the UN assembly, crying because Saddam's soldiers were butchering kuwaiti babies?

remember that it was a complete lie - the girl never was in kuwait?

That's what is referred to as a dramatization.

These are good lines too:

Quote:
Shortly afterwards, President Barack Obama said the attack threatened US national security interests.

:?

Quote:
UN chemical weapons inspectors are investigating the alleged poison-gas attacks and will present preliminary findings to the UN after they leave Damascus on Saturday.

But Mr Kerry said the US already had the facts, and nothing that the UN weapons inspectors found could tell the world anything new.

Gee, it almost sounds like he knows what they're going to say.

And weren't the swift boats patrolling entirely different body of water a third of the way across the world in another decade? How the fuck would they know what happened in Syria last week?
