Rogers: Russia ‘Got Exactly What They Wanted’

by Andrew Johnson

House Intelligence Committee chairman Mike Rogers remained skeptical of Russia’s role in negotiating the process of Syria’s handing over its chemical weapons to the international community. He blamed the Obama administration’s indecision for giving Russia the “diplomatic advantage.”

“This is a Russian plan for Russian interests,” the Michigan Republican said on CNN’s State of the Union on Sunday. “They got exactly what they wanted: They wanted Assad here for a year, or at least extended for a year, and they got that.”
