Retired U.S. Maj. Gen. Paul E. Vallely — an outspoken critic of the Obama administration over several issues, especially what he calls “purges” of high-ranking U.S. military officers — says that when it comes to foreign policy, Russian President Vladimir Putin is the professional and Barack Obama is the amateur.
Vallely said the lack of Obama administration backing for the “true Syrian Army hijacked to some degree the revolution” and empowered the extremists . Vallely, who backs Col. Riad al-Asaad of the “true” Free Syrian Army, was told by “confidential sources” that Obama and the White House had directed the CIA to “stand down” on any involvement in the Syrian conflict “in particular, to support Col. Riad and the true Syrian Army.”
