Anyone who actually read it would know that, according to this (of  
course anonymously sourced) article, "that year" was 2011 when  
"everyone" expected Assad to fall quickly! If Obama wasn't  
"envisioning...military intervention" two months ago he certainly  
ought not to have told Hollande to get his attack aircraft fueled and  
ready to take off!
