Obama Official Says Putin’s New War Is a Sign of American Success
Moscow displays its military might in Syria—while Washington shows its 
ineptitude. It’s all a sign, one top U.S. official says, that America’s 
Syria policy worked like a charm.

The Russian airstrikes on Syria are a sign that U.S. policy is working, 
a senior State Department official told shocked Syrian-American 
advocates in a private meeting on Monday.

The “Russians wouldn’t have to help Assad if we didn’t weaken him,” U.S. 
Special Envoy for Syria Michael Ratney said, according to multiple 
participants in the meeting and contemporaneous notes. Russian 
intervention, he went on to say, is a sign of success for American 
policy on Syria.
