AMBASSADOR ROBERT JORDAN, former U.S. Ambassador to Saudi Arabia, talked to Brian about what the U.S. might be doing under the radar in the Middle East. Jordan said he thinks we are doing a lot: "I suspect we have operatives both within Syria and working on the Turkish border; I suspect we're working heavily in Jordan; and I have no doubt tha t there are many backchannel conversations."
Jordan also said that he does not blame the American people for not knowing which side to take because it is hard to tell the "good guys from the bad guys," and the President has not established a set of guidelines or principles on which he's viewing this. "Probably no one is wearing a white hat out there right now," he explained.
