Obama administration struggles to craft ceasefire in Syria
WASHINGTON - Secretary of State John Kerry heads to Munich on Wednesday in search of a compromise with other world powers that could end Syria's civil war. It's not the first time he's tried, and the administration is being pressed by all sides to clarify its strategy.
The Obama administration has become increasingly torn between its loyalty to Turkey as a NATO ally and to its longtime Arab partner, Saudi Arabia. Then there's the cold pragmatism of Russia. The result has been a confusing mix of shifting priorities that have exposed the U.S. policy toward Syria that few understand and even fewer see working.
Kerry said, "we will approach this meeting in Munich with great hopes that this will be a telling moment."
