Krauthammer: U.S. Should Stay Out of Syria Because Obama ‘Doesn’t Know What He’s Doing’

Syndicated conservative columnist Charles Krauthammer continued to hammer away at President Barack Obama’s Syria strategy on Friday night, during an interview with radio host Hugh Hewitt.

Krauthammer, who said last week a poorly-executed strike on Syria may result in a “major regional war,” told Hewitt he did not favor intervening overseas because of what he says is a lack of leadership capibilities from the president.

“The reason I’m for staying out is because this president doesn’t know what he’s doing,” Krauthammer said.

Krauthammer added that “it looks as if he [Obama] wants to do nothing” except use the U.S. military forces “for effect.”

The syndicated columnist also took a dig at the international community, saying it doesn’t exist.

“The whole notion of the international community is a ridiculous fiction that liberals have  invented,” Krauthammer said. “There is no international community. There is the United States and their allies.”
