The Obama administration's diplomatic acrobatic over Syria of the past three weeks prove that the president and his team are in way over their heads, amateurs in the deadly game of war and peace. (One wonders if Valerie Jarrett is making the key decisions in this instance, as in so many others.)
Notice a difference? The crowd greeting Obama in Berlin in 2008.
That Obama seems driven to defend his own honor and credibility, regardless of cost, makes this episode particularly troublesome. A great country finds itself held hostage to the ego of a small man.
And the Berlin crowd for Obama in 2013.
