Obama’s got it, in spades.

Read this editorial by Jackson Diehl, deputy editorial page editor of the Washington Post, one of the leading propagandizers of liberal-progressive-socialism.  Hat tip to Jonathan S. Tobin on the Commentary website.

To fix foreign policy mistakes, President Obama must first admit them


Quote:

This is not to argue that Obama should dispatch hundreds of thousands of U.S. ground troops to the region. The point is that a doctrine whose first priority is avoiding U.S. engagement is bound to fail. The goal must be offensive: to defeat those forces that are destroying Iraq and Syria, from the Islamic State to the homicidal regime of Bashar al- Assad. That can be accomplished only with U.S. military and political leadership. And it will require Obama to accept the conclusion he still bitterly resists: that he was wrong.
