    Is anyone surprised? This is what you get when you put a completely unqualified community organized in office as president.
    As one who has seldom, if ever, supported Obama, I must here.

    Congrats, a president that admits to what every other president in recent history has neglected to mention....attack first, plan later.

    Look, you were in Vietnam how long? What was the plan there when the US rejected please from Ho Chi Minh for help and attacked him instead? What was the "plan" in the second Iraq war? That one sure worked...fire everyone with a gun, kick them out of a job and expect them to line the streets waving home made flags?

    What IS the plan in Afghanistan, besides killing every living thing you see? If there is one, can someone point to what that looks like?

    He got honest for once in his administration....must be something in the water

    He or she will have a helluva job cut out for them, that's for sure. It will not be the same America after Obama's remaining years, or the same world.

    Makes sense to me. You whack Isis and it's to Assad's advantage. You whack Assad and it's to Isis' aadvantage.

    No quick fixes here.

    What does make sense is to let them keep killing each other off in Syria which is to our advantage.

    Obama unlike Dumbya actually think things through and the long range implications.

    Not surprised a partisan hack thinks dissing his president because he's of the other party is more important than standing by his CiC and country.

    I don't have a plan either, but then I didn't run for and be elected President. I expect him to have a plan.

    We didn't interfere. We stayed clear because the alternatives were't good either, much to the consternation of war mongers like McCain and Lindsey Graham. At least we got the chemical weapons destroyed.

    I could easily make the case that Russia meddled more than we did as they supported the Assad regime.

    Who knew that playing golf was preferable to actually gathering the cabinet and solving something?

    If the strategy is to ensure that America is no longer seen as the lone super power, and project weakness, bravo.
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    Americans are tired of war and want peace but 'Superpower' status, and 'Leader of the Free World' status, means they either inherit those responsibilities or transfer them elsewhere, much like the British did. But now there is no one to transfer them to. Their enemies are not going to end a war simply because polls show Americans are tired of it, or that they can be placated because BHO admitted to some American mistakes, has a Muslim background, or was a left wing sympathizer in college. What the Nobel Committee saw as strengths were not shared by the realpolitik players.

    I can see a further exodus from the United States by wealthier Americans who have become frustrated with both their domestic and international policies. The change Obama promised has now begun to arrive.
