How Biden haunts Biden

Biden can weigh in on Syria, but he has to reckon with the fact that he was there when the red line was drawn and ignored during the Obama administration. As Washington Post columnist Marc Thiessen wrote:

“Russia’s military intervention in Ukraine came in the aftermath of the Obama-Biden administration’s failure to enforce its red line against Bashar al-Assad’s use of chemical weapons by Syria.”

“Assad responded by using chemical weapons on innocent civilians not once, but 16 times. And yet Obama and Biden did nothing, failing to carry out even ‘unbelievably small’ military strikes — a decision Biden publicly defended.”
