Krauthammer: Russia Has 'Swindled' the U.S. in Syria
Charles Krauthammer told Bill O'Reilly tonight that Russia has "swindled" the U.S. as it increases its role in Syria and the Middle East.
"They have essentially returned armed, with their armed forces, in Syria, to the heart of the Middle East," Krauthammer said. "We had kicked them out in 1972."
He called it a "historic reversal" of the U.S. being the dominant power in the region.
"We are now begging the Russians to negotiate with us ... so they don't shoot down our own airplanes," Krauthammer said. "The biggest humiliation of all is that the Russians today said they are the only air force flying legitimately over Syria, because they have the permission and request of the legitimate Syrian government, and we are violating international law with our missions over ISIS."
