    When asked about things for which Obama did not receive credit, I would add the alternative he chose when Assad "Crossed the Red Line". Many accused Obama of being weak for not bombing Syria following the use of chemical weapons. Instead, he succeeded in having 1308 TONS OF CHEMICAL WEAPONS REMOVED. Consider this: -) Assad had widely dispersed his chemical weapons (Sarin, Mustard gas, etc.) -) We didn't know where all the chemical stockpiles were -) Assad had placed some stockpiles within urban settings - which precluded bombing them -) A retaliatory strike at an army base or the like would have questionable effect. -) IN 2013-2013, Assad's regime was in danger of falling to Al Qaeda, Al Nusra, and the Taliban -) If Assad's regime collapsed, the terrorists would possess those chemical weapons Instead of bombing Obama (and Kerry) with the aid of Russia, had 1308 TONS of chemical weapons removed and destroyed. THAT was a good move, far superior to bombing a few sites in Syria.
