World chess champion and Human Rights Foundation chair Garry Kasparov hasn’t been impressed by President Obama’s “red lines” in Syria and Ukraine, noting in February that “Obama could sell his red lines on eBay as new. They are all in mint condition, never used!”

That red line nonsense in Syria from last year is now coming back to bite the administration, says Kasparov.

Obama’s priorities seem to be clear to Kasparov.
