Cheney points at ‘weak’ Obama for Syrian refugee mess

Appearing on Fox News Sunday, former vice president Dick Cheney blames Obama for the refugee crisis in Europe, saying his dealing with Syria “from a position of weakness” led to the current state.

“I think that what’s happened is that he has created a huge vacuum,” he says, according to an account posted by The Hill. “I think when the US played a major role in the region, it would have been much easier to manage this situation.”

Cheney accuses Obama of never having a military option against Bashar Assad on the table, giving the dictator free reign to destroy Syria.

“He’s talked about it repeatedly, but no one has ever believed him,” he says.
