Obama goes wobbly on his 'allies' in Syria

Washington Post:
White House skepticism stalls plan to boost CIA-backed rebels in Syria

Officials said there are growing doubts about what the fighters can achieve because of Russia’s intervention, and President Obama now seems inclined to leave the fate of the CIA program, which has been the centerpiece of U.S. strategy, up to the next occupant of the White House.
His support has always been half-hearted and minimal.  I get the impression he was just doing it to keep them somewhat viable until he left office.  There is also the problem of the embarrassing failure of the vetting process.  Some of those trained and armed by the US immediately took their weapons with them to join al Qaeda.

When it comes to dealing with Assad and the Russians, Barack Obama is not a serious man..
