Remember back in 2009 after the Iranian elections, when Obama basically did nada to assist the Iranian protests? When our president punted on a chance to knock-out the Anti-American leadership in Iran, and refused to offer ANY real help to the protesters?
Well surprise, surprise, Obama is at it again. It appears he and he alone decided to not arm the Syrian rebels, against the advice of virtually EVERYONE in his administration.
According to Leon Panetta’s and Martin Demsey’s testimony this week, we had the State Department, The Joint Chiefs, the CIA and the Defense Department all in favor of supporting the Syrian rebels…and yet Obama said “uh, …nope“.
So I think I’m being completely fair when I ask: if Obama doesn’t support the rebels, that must mean that he DOES support Syria’s murderous tyrant Bashar al-Assad, correct? Seriously, what other explanation IS there?
Obama seems to have a soft spot for Middle-Eastern despots, or maybe just despots in general.
I wonder why that is?
