incendi: Amos Quito: What, you didn't think that Obama and Netanyahu would actually let them comply, did you?

FTA: Marie Harf, a State Department spokeswoman, said Wednesday that "our goal is to see forward momentum" by Saturday, not the full list. "We've never said it was a hard and fast deadline."

Soooo.... yes?

It was not so much a red line as general guidance.

Amos Quito: Soooo.... no?

Or is that a maybe?

Well, that's the earlier of the two statements - last Saturday, setting the "ultimatum", vs. Wednesday, with the "Maybe that's not quite so ultimatumish as we previously led you to believe", so yeah, I think somewhere in there, there's the intent to let Syria comply.

Although, the whole ultimatum setting business in the first place has a little bit of the pre-Iraq stink, where we said, "Give us all your documentation NOW OR ELSE!", Saddam gave us a hastily thrown together many-thousands-of-pages document, and we basically said, "HEY, this isn't 12 pt font with 1 inch margins in a clear plastic binder, WTFSHOCKNAWEMOTHERfarkERSGITSOMEWOOOOOOOEEEEEEEEEEE!!"

Whatever. It's a cluster fark. It's been a clusterfark for hundreds of years and will be a clusterfark hundreds of years from now. Wasting time and money on it won't help.
