SYRIA: Obama administration mishandling situation

I am not impressed with the handling of the Syrian situation by this administration. The contradictions and bumbling by Secretary of State John Kerry and President Obama are almost laughable.

The lack of leadership by this president is catching the attention of countries like Iran, China, North Korea and others. The president was outmaneuvered by Russian President Vladimir Putin and Syria with a possible solution to this problem.

I wonder how the Normandy invasion would have gone if we had told the Germans what beaches we would land on and when and how many ships and landing craft we had. This president did exactly that, and I would call that incompetent or amateurish at best.
