-- are now saying the President Obama has failed in handling serious civil war.
He claims the president's inaction has led to the worst possible scenario listen here.
And politics -- -- foreign policy timing matters so these are options that were there for us a year and a half ago before this thing kind of became this chaotic.
It -- does the kind of identify whether there was any elements there within Syria fighting against the side.
That we can work with a reasonable people -- wouldn't carry out human rights violations and could be part of building a new Syria we failed to do that this president failed to do that what about that KT McFarland Fox News national security analyst with me now you've just returned from Israel the region -- -- -- talking a lot of people on the ground.
Address senator review.
Point out he's got a good point you know we're -- at this point it's a day late and a dollar short did we have options a year and a half ago two years ago.
We were we could have identified were there any strong pro western secular rebel groups we -- worked with we we don't know.
We certainly identify them early on and we didn't help them -- at this point they are so far behind.
That -- alphabet the Syrian rebels that's at George Washington -- why is that so hard to identify the good guys.
I'm because -- still there there yeah -- they're weak they're disorganized they haven't had a lot of assistance and I've now been fighting for a year and a half.
I think the question is could we've identified -- a year and a half ago we didn't.
I wasn't privy to the intelligence maybe there were there -- honestly don't think we ever had great options over Syria but whatever wise it's too late Nancy.
A lot of talk about a no fly zone.
Is that is that possible is I guess is always possible north possible would you support that mission what are we trying to do in Syria.
-- I understand we don't -- to stand by and watch.
You know chemical weapons being used and thousands of people.
Being killed and probably up from a million million I have people as refugees but what's our objective here are we gonna try to overthrow -- Yeah look at this and I say it's too enemies and the fighting -- chatter don't try to stop them.

-- -- and he's got his allies Hezbollah Iran Russia.
On the other side you've got the rebels a lot of them are al-Qaeda the strong description of the car al-Qaeda.
They're fighting each other and doing really belong in the middle -- -- I don't see how a no fly zone.

And we've known for about two years that you know the extremists.
From al-Qaeda are fighting as well do these two forces.
Cancel one another round is that we are arguing.
-- you know what can we do and I think at this point we can't really.
Help the rebels to the point the good guy rebels to the point where they're gonna defeat both of those two bad guy groups right.
So what can we do I think we can help shore Jordan I think we can help the Syrian refugees.
And I didn't even afraid -- -- chemical weapons are but -- -- getting in the middle of a fight between.
Al-Qaeda on one hand and a shot on the other I'm actually going to wants.
Center -- interest you mentioned Jordan too is a long time ally -- a million refugees I think in the country.
