Is President Obama a strong and decisive man? Earlier this week his regime was beating the war drums by telegraphing to the world how and almost when they were gonna bomb Syria. By mid-week Obama is back to hemming and hawing to make a final decision.
The commander-in-chief sat down Wednesday for an exclusive half-hour interview with PBS NewsHour senior correspondents Judy Woodruff and Gwen Ifill to discuss a wide range of topics, among them the ongoing civil war in Syria.
The president said that allegations that his Syrian counterpart, Bashar al-Assad, used chemical weapons on civilian populations would factor into his calculation and he warned that Assad should be held accountable.
It comes as reports in Britain say the White House is prepared to delay making any strikes until Tuesday, having previously stated that action would be taken this weekend.
Meanwhile leader of Syria Bashar al-Assad is laughing and telling the Arab street he’s punked the president of the United States, again!
