Skip to comments.Senior UK Defense Advisor: Obama Is Clueless About ‘What He Wants To Do In The World’

Sir Hew Strachan, an expert on the history of war, says that the presidents strategic failures in Afghanistan and Syria have crippled Americas position in the world. President Obama is chronically incapable of military strategy and falls far short of his predecessor George W. Bush, according to one of Britains most senior military advisors.
Sir Hew Strachan, an advisor to the Chief of the Defense Staff, told The Daily Beast that the United States and Britain were guilty of total strategic failure in Iraq and Afghanistan, and Obamas attempts to intervene on behalf of the Syrian rebels has left them in a far worse position than they were before.
The extraordinary critique by a leading advisor to the United States closest military ally comes days after Obama was undermined by the former Defense Secretary Robert Gates, who questioned the Presidents foreign policy decisions and claimed he was deeply suspicious of the military.
Strachan, a current member of the Chief of the Defense Staffs Strategic Advisory Panel, cited the crazy handling of the Syrian crisis as the most egregious example of a fundamental collapse in military planning that began in the aftermath of 9/11. If anything its gone backwards instead of forwards, Obama seems to be almost chronically incapable of doing this. Bush may have had totally fanciful political objectives in terms of trying to fight a global War on Terror, which was inherently astrategic, but at least he had a clear sense of what he wanted to do in the world. Obama has no sense of what he wants to do in the world, he said. The dithering over intervention against President Bashar al-Assad has empowered the Syrian ruler, undermined Americas military reputation and destabilized the Middle East, said Strachan.

Another Captain Obvious Xspurt weighs in on the Community 0rganizer.
He knows exactly what he wants to do...
Affirmative Action has severe consequences.
Oh, that’s absurd. He knows exactly what he wants. So do I. He wants to live in luxury, play golf, and get serviced by white men.
Actually this is where I disagree, Obama knows EXACTLY what he wants to do, he wants to make America less of a Super power because he despises everything America stands for. He hates our military, our Constitution, everything that makes America, America
INTENTIONAL...everything that Clown Prince nobama does is intentional.
Nothing like being in control of the great satan and trying not to take yourself down with it.
He’s not clueless about what he wants to do it the world. He wants the same new world order as Putin. At the top of the list, a significantly weaker US.
says it all: President Clueless
How can theses pundits still be so naive when the truth has been staring them in the face for five years. He was installed to destroy the U.S. and its people’s well being - in education, economically, militarily, socially, morally and religiously. He is the fact of an evil group.
So let me get this straight...
I toss the coin....and...
if it lands on heads we have Ragfu Beef for lunch...
and if it's tails we have lobster....chortle....
Agreed crippling America’s position in the world is exactly his goal.
Clueless is putting it mildly!
Obama can't publicly state what he wants to do in the world. He can do it, right in plain sight, and send out his MSM flying monkeys to excoriate anyone who calls him on it. But he can't yet publicly state it.
I hope all Presidents say ‘Let the world take care of itself, I have my own problems here’.
