President Obama has been judged to be 'chronically incapable' of conducting a coherent military strategy and 'has no sense of what he wants to do in the world', according to Oxford University professor, Sir Hew Strachan - one of the UK's most respected and senior military advisers.
The damning verdict from a governmental insider of the United States' closest military ally comes days after the president was heavily criticized by his own former Defense Secretary Robert Gates who said that Obama was indecisive and lacked any passion for his nation's armed forces.
Claiming that America and Britain had committed total strategic failure in their near decade-long Iraq and Afghanistan campaigns, Strachan said that the recent failed attempts to intervene militarily on behalf of Syrian rebels 'has left them in a far worse position than they were before.'
Strachan is currently a member of the United Kingdom's Chief of Defence Staff's Strategic Advisory Panel and claims that the 'crazy' mismanagement of the Syrian crisis at the end of the summer was the worst example of the military planning in evidence since 9/11 and that at least President George W. Bush had a plan and stuck to it....

The fact that it has taken five years for some folks to figure this out says a lot about cluelessness elsewhere.
You beat me to it; GMTA!
Frankly, I also have been unable to discern clear strategic goals in Administration policy. I am releived that I wasn't just imagining it.
So Odumbo doesn’t know what he is doing? I never knew this...
The only reason to believe this is if you believe Obama has US interests as a goal. He does not.
Capable, competent, and having a clue....is racist, sexist, and homophobic. Elderly lesbians hurt the most.
But he had a beer summit! That policeman has not harassed another educator (as far as I know).
I think we all already knew this on day one.
Once you admit that he sides with the enemy, it becomes much easier to understand.
In an incident that may deepen strains between the two governments, Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon was quoted in the Israeli daily Yediot Aharonot as saying that Kerry is inexplicably obsessive and messianic. He added that the only thing that may save us is if Kerry wins the Nobel Prize and leave us, the article said. up
Anytime I hear anyone in Europe complain about Obama, my blood pressure skyrockets. Those dingbats all but begged for us to coronate him, and we handed them exactly what they said they wanted: a non-cowboy, anti-capitalist, multicultural sponge. Live with it, jackasses.
Has it ever occurred to you that this incompetence is just a case of smoke and mirrors to hide his real intent — the destruction of this country?
In that respect, he is very capable.
Yeah, but Obama is real good at discussing European philosophers. And that crease in his pants....why, you just can’t beat it.
Precisely. It is folly to believe that Obama’s actions are the result of ineptitude or stupidity. The man has an agenda to form his new America that requires him to destroy traditional America. With that as his goal I would say his actions have been extremely capable, focused, and effective.
Obama Policy: ‘Skilled high-income groups are bad.’
Motivational speaker? NOT
Not to split hairs, but I think we all knew this WAY before his day one in office.
Watching “Restaurant Impossible” last night I realized that Obama was the ignorant businessman that had to be told he was living in the past, not making any money and not trying to make improvements — out of pride.
