Is that how it went down?

Shrillary says she tried to convince Obama to intervene early in the Syrian Civil War, back when she thinks they might have influenced the makeup of the opposition.

First of all, I’m not even convinced that’s how things went down. But maybe my memory isn’t that good, or maybe there were private discussions.

But secondly, if that is how it happened, then I think I agree with Obama. At least more than I do Hillary. I think all the aid we might have given to the Syrian opposition would have ended up in the hands of ISIL. Heck, a lot of the military assets we gave Iraq -an actual sovereign nation at the time- ended up in in ISIL’s arsenal.

Not sure Hillary wants to make her major break with the administration on the idea that she wanted to help the Syrian rebels.  Really grasping at straws there, Hil.

    I think she’s lying but I agree with her idea (years too late).

    At first, it was Teh Peepul yearning to be free.
    Of course there were jihadis, but they were mostly Hezbollah and their allies and they were on the side of Assad.
    I’m not saying it would have worked, but I think we should have tried.

    Weren’t we told that we didn’t arm the rebels because Assad was a “reformer”- or something?
