Obama has `amazing confusion` on Syria crisis: Ex-UN envoy

Former UN Ambassador John Bolton has said there appears to be `amazing confusion` on the president`s part about how to handle the Syria crisis and reports of chemical weapon use.

Washington: Former UN Ambassador John Bolton has said there appears to be `amazing confusion` on the president`s part about how to handle the Syria crisis and reports of chemical weapon use.

Obama, in remarks at the White House last August, made clear the United State`s position on chemical weapons in the battle-worn state: even chemical weapon movement would cross a red line, Fox News reports.

Bolton said on `America`s News Headquarters` that he think that having issued the red line in the first place was a mistake, the report said.
The former ambassador`s comments come a day after the Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel discussed positioning military assets near Syria.

Obama met on Saturday with his National Security team at the White House to discuss a Syria response if reports of chemical weapon use are deemed accurate, the report added.
