For those who bet against my prediction earlier in the string, there was news last night that Assad is moving gaggles of rebel prisoners to the obvious targets of our now almost certain attacks, while moving any of his supporters who might be in harm's way to heavily populated civilian areas and mosques.

Let me know if you're surprised.

Among the many mistakes the administration has made on this issue, one of the most glaring is telegraphing intentions for weeks (literally) before any action. Let's just say that the element of surprise has definitely been sacrificed.
