Obama backs down – In the face of overwhelming opposition from the American people and from Congress to his proposed military strike on Syria, Obama put on hold his plans to assist Islamist rebels.

Zogby is founder and president of the Arab American Institute and a co-founder of the Palestine Human Rights Campaign as well as the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee.
