The failure of the United States and its partners to protect Syrians from the Assad regime's barrel bombs will tarnish the legacy of Barack Obama, a president whose compassion and humanity were on display recently at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina. It was a magnificent performance, one that makes Mr. Obama's indifference toward mass murder in Syria all the more striking. Mr. Obama and his military advisers know how to throw sand into the gears of President Bashar Assad's mass murder machine.When it comes to the Assad regime's atrocities it is Iran that stays the president's hand.Mr. Obama realizes that Iran is the main external facilitator of mass murder in Syria. He understands that Tehran can make Assad stop the barrel bombs, shelve the chlorine gas and lift the starvation sieges. Yet he fears offending Iran over Syria. All this for the sake of camouflaging Mr. Obama's accommodation of Iranian interests and behavior in Syria.
