Obama administration miscalculation led to Russian getting involved in Syria

Erick Erickson:
...
... The entire audio has subsequently been taken down by CNN. The part that was never made public, however, has been leaked. In it, John Kerry admits that the United States saw ISIS growing, which he referred to as Daesh. But instead of doing anything about it, Kerry says the Obama Administration calculated that its growth would lead the Assad regime in Syria to the negotiating table.

Instead, Kerry says, Assad turned to Vladimir Putin for help....
I think Obama is primarily responsible for this miscalculation.  He appears to have underestimated ISIL at every turn as well as the Syrians and the Russians.
