Obama Confident Assad Regime Will Fall

At a joint press conference Friday with King Abdullah II of Jordan, President Obama said he is confident the Assad regime in Syria will fall. “It’s not a question of if, it’s when,” Obama said in Amman, Jordan. 

“And so, part of what we have to spend a lot of time thinking about is, what’s the aftermath of that? And how does that work in a way that actually serves the Syrian people?” Obama added.
