Obama: We May Not Be Directly Imminently Threatened in Syria (RealClearPolitics)
PRESIDENT OBAMA: We may not be directly imminently threatened by what's taking place in a Kosovo, or Syria, or Rwanda in the short-term. But our long-term national security will be impacted in a profound way and our humanity is impacted in a profound way. And so I think it's important for us to get out of the habit in those circumstances.
