Aleppo Is a Terrible Legacy

Everything else of Obama’s administration will be unraveled –the dead women and children of Aleppo remain dead!
President Obama says he will not follow the tradition of past presidents and speak loudly about the Trump Administration after January 20.

“The Great I Am” speaks, but if he speaks over a mass grave in Aleppo does anyone hear? 

I don’t, and the dead civilians in Aleppo do not hear! The ragged remaining refugees from Aleppo were brought out just as his Air Force One left for the final Hawaiian vacation of his failed administration. 

J. Richard Cohen, president of the Southern Poverty Law Center and Civil Rights Lawyer, writing in the Washington Post, skewers President Obama in some of the most powerful lines ever written about a sitting president of his own party. Try this on for style: 

 “Churchill had a marvelous way with words, and greatness accompanied him like a shadow, but in certain ways he was a 19th-century man wandering, confounded, in the 20th.

Barack Obama is quite the reverse. He is a 21st-century man who never quite appreciated the lessons of the 20th. He has been all too happy to preside over the loss of American influence. Aleppo, Syria, now a pile of rubble, is where countless died — as did American influence. The Russians polished it off from the air, doing for the Syrian regime what the United States could not figure out how to do for the rebels. The city hemorrhaged civilian dead, and America, once the preeminent power in the region, did virtually nothing.”

“…He waved a droopy flag. He did not want to make America great again. It was great enough for him already.

That coolness, that no-drama Obama, cost lives in Syria. Instead of rallying the United States to a worthy cause — intervening to save lives and avoid a refugee crisis that is still destabilizing Europe — he threw in the towel. The banner he flew was one of American diminishment. One could agree. One could not be proud.”

“Bloodless Obama, Bloody Aleppo,” Richard Cohen, Washington Post, December 27, 2016

The president appears to want to give the middle finger to our ally, Israel, right after the dead were buried in Aleppo. It’s hard to imagine what insults remain!

But after his recent exhibition, Obama is working hard to have his photo expunged from the records of presidents, or at least placement as the worst in history, behind Jimmy Carter.
