EVEN THE NEW YORK TIMES IS ADMITTING IT: Obama’s Syria Play A Failure.

Russia has not only avoided a quagmire in Syria, its successes on the battlefield against C.I.A.-backed rebels have given it new leverage in the Middle East. . . .

Remember the good old days when all the Obama acolytes gloated that the hapless Putin had fallen into Obama’s trap in Syria, that poor pitiful Putin would be caught in a quagmire in Syria just like Brezhnev in Afghanistan, while America’s moral standing and world influence would grow?

Now even the NYT seems ready to accept that the jaws of the trap aren’t closing as planned, and that Putin’s Syria policy is, well, working, while the American record in that miserable country is one of, well, failure.

To be fair, to call it a failure is to assume that you know what it was intended to accomplish.
