On Charlie Rose, President Obama tried to explain Syria by telling us we are dumb, we lack the necessary information, and we should never question his decisions (Starts at 10:35m). Maybe you share with me how I interpreted his remarks:
In fact, we are dumber than dumb and we did not know it before the President told us.
I wonder how the conversations went in the Situation Room when the first moderate FSA defectors were fleeing Assad”™s army and Mr. Obama refused to arm them, which invited extremism on both sides in the Muslim world to duke it out, in Syria, Ã la 7th century.
More than brains, we need information and facts to assess for ourselves, not a professor professorializing.
