“Those steps are underway”: Tillerson says U.S will organize international coalition to oust Assad
At Hot Air by ALLAHPUNDIT --
A reversal to the reversal. A week ago, Tillerson tossed out Obama’s “Assad must go” policy and declared that Assad’s long-term status will be decided by the Syrian people.
Today, three days after the chemical attack in Idlib: Nope, it’ll be decided by an international coalition, with the U.S. participating. “With the acts that he has taken,” says Tillerson here, “it would seem that there would be no role for him to govern the Syrian people.” But Ass took no actions this week that he hasn’t taken before. The only difference is that he defied the Trump administration’s “red line” this time instead of Obama’s.
