MSNBC: Obama Will Look Back On Syria With Deep Sorrow And Shame

On Wednesday, New York Times’s David Sanger and Fmr. NATO Supreme Allied Commander Adm. James Stavridis appeared on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” to discuss President Obama’s legacy in Syria.

“You have moments in life, and I think when President Obama looks back at the second term and the last part of his first, he’s going to come to the conclusion there was a moment of a year or a year and a half where they could have made a difference in Syria,” Sanger told the panel.

MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough then asked Adm. Stavridis what message the world received when President Obama didn’t enforce his red line.

“It sends a very bad one,” Adm. Stavridis told Scarborough.

Adm. Stavridis then expanded on Sanger’s statement saying, “He’ll (President Obama) look back in deep sorrow and some shame.”
