    I said foreign policy fail. Not Bush is to blame or Obama is to blame outright. I'm not sure much could have been done to avert this other than being more diplomatically involved way early on with not only Syria but surrounding neighbors to have a coherent strategy probably on containment, SOFA agreement with Iraq possibly, etc. etc. Not saying this area is a foreign policy soft ball, but foreign policy fail nonetheless. The result is what important, not the intention.
