US says: 'Half measures insufficient!' Ooops...they meant Syria, not Abbas.

Tough talk against a murderous terror regime, that, um, Europe doesn't seem to like either.

The United States considered "half measures" unsatisfactory, White House spokesman Scott McClellan said in response to the redeployment of Syrian forces in Lebanon.

"This does not add up to Syria leaving Lebanon. Nobody has said all troops are leaving Lebanon," a State Department official said.

"We will continue to hold their feet to the fire, not accept half-measures and call a spade a spade - that is, when they make these announcements about a withdrawal that is neither complete or immediate, we will call it for what it is,” the official said.

With all that bravado, I wonder when the White House will call Abbas a Holocaust-denier?
