Syrian Atrocities Cannot Go Ignored: The War Crimes Of The Obama Era

NOAH ROTHMAN, Commentary Magazine

With the Trump White House struggling to contain the fallout from the bombshell revelation that the president shared sensitive intelligence with Russian governmental officials, former Obama administration appointees cannot help but join the pile-on.

“Russians are working against our interests in Syria,” declared retired Rear Admiral John Kirby, the former spokesman for the State Department. “Never been serious [about] ISIS. Giving them intel not only won’t help, could hurt.”

He’s right, but the admonition comes far too late to be taken seriously. For six long years, the Obama administration presided over the chaos and death that typifies the Syria crisis. History will not reflect kindly upon their conduct.
