Obama’s defenders will argue that many world events are beyond Washington’s control and afford no good options. Furthermore, they will claim that Obama did not this time draw a red line, that he put the brakes on before doing that. Still, plenty of tough talk has come from Obama’s closest advisers in recent days. Now he is saying something different. When the U.S. government doesn’t speak in one voice, the world sees an indecisive, divided, irresolute and even weak administration. That’s not good for America nor for global stability.
