The Big Picture Mentions that the “Syrian Accountability Act” that the president mentioned in this years State of the Union speech, is actually a bill crafted by none other than Babs Boxer, a year or so back.


Big Picture goes further:

And here’s the kicker. Do you know who introduced this act in the Senate, out of a very reasonable concern over weapons of mass destruction in the mid-east, before political expediency made her take a different position?

Mrs. BOXER (for herself and Mr. SANTORUM) introduced the following bill; which was read twice and referred to the Committee on Foreign Relations

How about that? Senator Barbara Boxer, of California, who recently accused Condi Rice of lying to the American people when expressing similar concerns, herself sponsored this bill.
