Watching this video, looking beyond the smiles and the warm setting and the lovefest of the moment, you won’t be treated to any news making, ground-breaking information that you didn’t know about. George Stephanopoulos during his interview with Barack Obama today once again didn’t convincingly target the POTUS on his failed foreign policy and walk backed red lines. It’s almost ridiculous that these “journalist” have a job if they can’t/won’t get to the meat of the problem.
“I’m less concerned about style points, I’m much more concerned about getting the policy right,” Obama said. “What I’ve said consistently throughout is that the chemical weapons issue is a problem, I want that problem dealt with. As a consequence of the steps that we’ve taken over the last two to three weeks, we have a situation in which Syria has acknowledged it has chemical weapons, has said it’s willing to join the convention on chemical weapons, and Russia, its primary sponsor, has said it will pressure Syria to reach that agreement. That’s my goal. And if that goal is achieved, then it sounds to me as if we did something right.”
