prevented the slide and the situation there," Director
of John Brennan said in an interview with National
Public Radio (NPR).

you can divorce yourself, emotionally or mentally, from
these situations that you play a role in," Brennan said,
adding that he “felt some responsibility for the
horrific bloodshed” in the Syria war.
He then went

type of viable and genuine political process that will
bring to power in Damascus a government that is
representative of the Syrian people,” he further stated.

being able to shape events in Syria.
