Rumsfeld on Syria

Former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld appeared on Fox News today where he said that the Obama administration has not provided leadership or a clear reason for the involvement of the US in Syria’s civil war. Rumsfeld said that, “If you think of what’s really important in that region, it’s two things,” he added. “It’s Iran’s nuclear program and the relationship between Iran and Syria, the Assad regime, with respect to funding terrorists that go around killing innocent men, women and children including Americans.” Rumsfeld said that through the Obama administration, America is in an apology mode which is creating a vacuum for other countries to fill who do not have our values or governments. Countries like China and Russia have said that they want the US to abide by international law when it comes to Syria.
