Were people gassed so Obama could have a legacy?

Via Daily Caller.

Jay Solomon, a reporter for The Wall Street Journal, said on Monday that Barack Obama let his “red line” in Syria be crossed because Iran told him that if Assad was bombed, they would back out of the nuclear negotiations.

Appearing on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports,” Mitchell noted that Solomon, the author of the new book “The Iran Wars,” was “reporting new information about the red line that the president decided not to enforce basically against Syria after the chemical weapons attacks… Exactly three years ago, it was Labor Day weekend when he did not take military action. [Obama] had a lot of reasons he said at the time and Secretary Kerry said that the Russians helped us get rid of the chemical stockpiles so there was no need for military action but the bottom line is… there was also an Iranian component.” […]

“And U.S. and Iranian officials have both told me that they were basically communicating that if the U.S. starts hitting President Assad’s forces, Iran’s closest Arab ally… these talks cannot conclude. The IRGC, the Revolutionary guards would not accept a continued engagement with the US if their closest ally was being hit,” Solomon said as noted by the Washington Free Beacon.

    I think Valerie told Iran what to say, what Obama wanted to hear.
