Tyler Durden of Zero Hedge and others are misinterpreting Steve Kroft’s interview with President Obama. They see weakness and confusion in Obama’s responses and conclude that Kroft shredded Obama.
What I see is entirely different. Steve Kroft is either a neoconservative or he is inculcated into the neocon mind-set that the US must prevail everywhere. Kroft’s view is that weakness and indecision on Obama’s part is the reason the US is not prevailing in Syria. Kroft’s purpose is to embarrass Obama and push him into escalating the situation.
