Fiorina: When We Do Not Lead, the World Becomes a Much More Dangerous Place

‘When America does not act, when we do not lead as we have not the last three years under this president, our options become very constrained and the situation becomes more dangerous’

FIORINA: "Well, first of all, it’s a recognition that you cannot have a successful bombing campaign without people on the ground telling you where to place the bomb. So, he’s sort of come to reality. On the other hand, it’s also too little too late. I think this is a reflection of the reality, that when America does not act, when we do not lead as we have not the last three years under this president, our options become very constrained and the situation becomes more dangerous. I’m glad he did this, but we still do not have a strategy in Syria. We do not have a strategy to deal with ISIS. I’ve laid mine out. And so, as a result the situation is far more complicated than it was three years ago when he started talking big about Bashar al Assad must go and red lines cannot be crossed, and now we have Russia and Iran in the middle of Syria calling the shots. When we do not lead, the world becomes a much more dangerous and tragic place, and we are seeing that in Syria."
