As the civil conflict within Syria intensifies, and the call for American intervention forcing an intense hearing by the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, on Tuesday night Wolf Blitzer asked Richard Haass to share his expertise and analysis.
The President of the Council on Foreign Relations, Haass spoke about the global message being sent as a result of the U.S.'s position:
"In the case of Iran specifically, this is the other country to whom the Untied States has set a red line," Haass explained. "The president, as people know, said several times that our goal is not to contain an Iran with nuclear weapons, it's to prevent Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons."
Speaking live with Blitzer – Tuesday evening's guest host – Haass noted that Obama's current actions in Syria will prove telling in future dealings with Iran:
"The President has essentially allowed the red line to Syria to be somewhat ignored and what he has to do is find a way to send the message to Iran that you shouldn't read into this, you shouldn't think we didn't mean what we said when we said things to you."
