Given the Obama administration’s past record on picking winners and losers, it’s a good question.

We supported Mohamed Morsi’s overthrow of the Mubarak regime in Egypt, and continue to do so although it, in turn, is backed by the Muslim Brotherhood. This prompted a Cairo protester to display a sign in January calling Obama a “jerk” and an “idiot” for backing a government that is killing its own citizens.

In Libya, the U.S. lent military support to rebel forces in the form of air strikes to overthrow the Gaddafi regime. After the Libyan dictator was killed, the Libyan people thanked us by attacking our consulate in Benghazi and murdering our ambassador to Libya and three other embassy personnel.

In the case of Syria, the Assad regime is killing its own people and is reportedly even using sarin gas to do it. The Free Syrian Army, on the other hand, reportedly receives support from al-Qaida.

The president’s foreign policy track record in that part of the world isn’t very good. Maybe it’s time to let these countries work things out for themselves.
