Fisk: Obama, US have lost all cre... JPost - Diplomacy & Politics: "Fisk slams recent meetings between Obama and Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu as 'irrelevant' amid the struggle for democracy taking place in the region.
He refers to Obama's Middle East policy as 'muddled,' criticizing the US president for supporting democracy as long as it does not interfere with US interests. Fisk points specifically to the US supporting autocratic Saudi Arabia and allowing the regime of Syrian President Bashar Assad to survive despite a bloody crackdown against protesters.
The British journalist claims that Obama's reluctance to remove Assad from power stems from the fact that 'the Israelis would far prefer the 'stability' of the Syrian dictatorship to continue; better the dark caliphate you know than the hateful Islamists who might emerge from the ruins.'"
