Reporter: White House asks for no-fly zone plan inside Syria

(CNN) - Just last month, President Barack Obama said he wanted options in war-torn Syria.

"As early as last year, I asked the Pentagon, our military, our intelligence officials to prepare for me what options might be available. And I won't go into the details of what those options might be," said Obama.

    I am sure the the media will be more than happy to leak your options to the world...or the GOP might hold hearings so they can object to what might or might not be an option or a time frame or whatever...

    That would be the easiest thing to do in the first place. It is a good first step. We could also get a better idea where the chemical weapons are as well.

    Such wisdom. With republicans trying their best to destroy this country and aid terrorists, the best thing you can do is keep information (as much as possible), to yourself and out of their slimy, unAmerican ears.

    This article is criminal if Rogin is right policy of the white house or pentagon is leaking on war strategy so the Russians will arm Assad with surface to air missiles. QED a no fly zone gets American and other pilots killed and planes lost.
    This article just takes a no fly zone of the radar ha ha!!
    I think I know the only practical answer, but despite having nothing to with defense and national security will not blog the idea nor should any reporter..... it only helps the enemies.
    There was anothe slogan in the UK during ww!! it was " careless talk cost lives"
