William J. Dobson: Obama has botched the Arab Spring

The world woke last week to reports of a massive chemical weapons attack in the suburbs of Damascus, Syria. According to Syrian activists, hundreds of people – maybe even more than 1,000 – have died, gassed in their beds while they slept. Since the attack allegedly occurred in the middle of the night, the dead included women, children and infants. President Bashar Assad’s crimes against his people have been barbaric from the beginning. But if these reports prove true, Aug. 21 will surely be the worst single day in the slow-burning massacre of innocence that has marked the past two years in Syria.
