“We’ve made a decision that the Syrian Opposition Coalition is now inclusive enough, is reflective and representative enough of the Syrian population that we consider them the legitimate representative of the Syrian people in opposition to the Assad regime,” President Obama told Barbara Walters during an interview Tuesday.

So he means now that the coalition apparently meets some sort of affirmative action hiring scheme, we can endorse them?

No, that’s not it.

Obama’s Administration has unofficially recognized the Syrian rebels for some time now, since the U.S. has been the major funder and armorer of the opposition. The Administration just didn’t want the American public to recognize what it’s been up to in the Middle East.

    “….Publicly, Obama seems to think that he can rule the Middle East with the force of his personality, but so far, it just looks like his foreign policy is one colossal miscalculation….”

    There is no miscalculation. It is all part of the fundamental transformation of America. Destabilize the middle east with lunatic muzzslimes and then destroy Israel.

    Destroy the US economy so that the only option is to thoroughly gut and demoralize our military. Allow Russia and China to emerge as the world’s military super powers, and/or facilitate an International ruling body and monetary authority.

    Make America just another toothless European member state.

    My aluminum foil hat is tuned in today.
