Skip to comments.Two Obama Administration Scandals on Syria?
Posted on 05/19/2012 3:18:41 PM PDT by SunkenCiv
When a delegation of Syrian Kurdish rebels recently visited Washington, D.C., the State Department met them to ask for a favor. What was it? The Obama administration urged them to join the Syrian National Council (SNC), the organization created by the U.S. government through Turkey to lead the opposition movement and receive Western aid for all Syrian opposition groups.
But the Turkish Islamist regime, which Obama put in charge of forming the SNC, put the Muslim Brotherhood in control, a fact I pointed out within hours of the announcement of the SNC leadership's names.
Now that several SNC leaders have resigned complaining about Brotherhood domination, followed by some Arab journalists pointing out the obvious Brotherhood domination at the SNC's last meeting, that reality is clear. But the implications of such an incredibly foolish policy -- "America putting an anti-American, antisemitic group into the -- "official -- leadership of Syria's rebels -- " have never been properly examined as a case study for Obama's disastrous Middle East policy.
The Kurds had walked out of the talks that formed the SNC last year when they saw how Islamists would be in control. Not only do they oppose Islamism itself but they also see the Brotherhood as an Arabizing and centralizing group that would impose a regime oppressing the non-Arab Kurds.
The new U.S. effort so backfired that, with the Obama administration ignoring their concerns, the enraged Kurds in the delegation spoke for the first time of breaking up Syria altogether!

Just when you think he can’t get any dumber, he surprises you with yet another amazingly obvious act of stupidity.
I would love to know who is pulling the puppet strings.
Have a great night.
He’s stupid like a fox. This is probably deliberate. If he’s a Mooslum, he’s a Sunni MB Mooslum.
have never been properly examined as a case study for Obama's
disastrous highly successful [according to his REAL goals] Middle East policy.
There, fixed it.
"Just when you think he cant get any dumber, he surprises you with yet another amazingly obvious act of stupidity."
His acts are only "stupid" if you give him credit for wanting & trying to do the wise thing and proper thing for America.
Once you remove that assumption, then it is clear that EVERYTHING he has done IS SUCCESSFUL, in light of his actual desires and objectives.
“What do they need American coordination for? What does the word coordination mean?”
Keeping the arms flowing into the hands of the MB, and not into the hands of the Kurds, who are now separatists, thanks to this Administration’s bungling/sabotage. Breaking up Syria isn’t really a bad idea, imho. If the OSA won’t supply the Kurds, perhaps Israel should.
An interesting possibility. An independent Kurdistan carved out of Iraq and Turkey, with access to the sea carved out through Syria. Reasonable in terms of self-determination. Reasonable as a reward for the Kurds for their opposition to Saddam. Reasonable payback to Syria and Turkey.
HEY Diogeneses: I'm only picking on you because you have been the most outspoken among the HATE-ROMNEY/MORMONS here and one who I remember suggesting Mittens is MUCH MORE dangerous and a threat than is the ISLAMO-FASCIST, APPEASING/DEFENDING/SUPPORTING, bottom-feeding, scumbag, posing as our Commander in Chief.
Yeah, abortion, gay marriage and the economy are important, but who will be around in 5 or 10 year to oppose these policies if the United States of America no longer exists as we know it?
Care to jump in here and show me ONE example of where Romney has EVER done/said ANYTHING which is nearly as inimical to our survival....SECURITY WISE???
