Obama, in Jordan after his Israel visit, pledged to work with Congress to provide $200 million in aid for Syrian refugees, says he is sure Assad will go; King also says window of opportunity for Israeli-Palestinian peace closing due to settlement activity.
U.S. President Barack Obama and Jordan's King Abdullah presented a united front against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad on Friday as Jordan grapples with a refugee crisis caused by Syria's civil war.
Obama, in Jordan following a visit to Israel and the West Bank, pledged new aid to help the country deal with the refugee crush but stopped short of promising military assistance to Syrian rebels to speed the departure of Assad after a two-year civil war that has claimed 70,000 lives.
Syria dominated talks between Obama and King Abdullah. Jordanian authorities worry that any emergence of Islamist rule in a post-Assad Syria could embolden Islamists who are the main opposition group in Jordan.

Hey - it’s only (your) money.....
She is quite the hottie.
But yet there is no money for white house tours, air traffic control towers and keeping national parks open at home...
They make the best wives and I not just saying that because mine is watching me type this :D
Haha, of course you aren’t.
Just take my word for it, okay? :)
She’s convinced me. :)
After the Israeli beauty queen and this gem, it is understandable why mooch-elle did not want to go on this trip. Pictures of her would show such a contrast that even the msm couldn’t cover.
In the last 2 weeks Obama has given almost half a billion dollars, (without House/senate approval), to the middle east, yet he has the gall to cancel white house tours and the Easter egg roll.
Swiss bankers must be pleased...
I love the pic that has Bruni, Rania, and Michelle walking up the steps.
Everyone knows an islamic totalitarian state under sharia law makes for a wonderful, blossoming, enlightened society. Jihads, fatwas, stonings, be-headings, female repression/mutilation, etc.
A modern, somewhat pro-western monarchy versus a Muslim Brotherhood ruled Islamic state. A tough call for any rational human being. /s.
To our marxist, muslim, America-hating, faggot, illegal-alien in Chief it's a no brainer.....He wants the radical muzzies running things.
When the history of the World is written, people will marvel at how a nation (The US) who has to borrow from it’s enemies, (China) to continue to operate can go around handing out money to countries that hate them.
Two hundred million to Syria.
Whew, good thing Beezle doesn’t spend it on non-essentials like..
Refitting the USS Abraham Lincoln.
Jordan does not hate the US.
