Krauthammer’s Take: Obama Needs to Stop Thinking about Intervention and Make a Decision

by NRO Staff

​Charles Krauthammer called on President Obama to stop hesitating and make a decision to address the humanitarian crisis in Iraq.

“This is a hugely important strategic interest to the United States, and Obama sits, and what we’re hearing now is he’s thinking about intervention,” he said on Thursday’s Special Report. “Well, don’t tell us what you’re thinking — make a decision one way or the other and do it. The world is waiting.”

Krauthammer pointed to the Kurds in the region as a still-reliable ally and “firewall,” despite the tenuous situation in whichthey currently find themselves.
