Given the events at Sochi, such as the beating of the Pussy Riot activists, and the way the crisis in Ukraine has played out, I truly believe that you owe your readers an apology. This was one of the worst articles I have ever read in your magazine, and does, in fact, make me question my subscription. Though the whole article was troubling, the notion that Putin has “virtually saved Obama’s presidency” by his role in Syria is just offensive. I don’t believe Putin is interested in saving any presidencies other than his own, and the puppets he controls in the surrounding former “republics” of the Soviet Union. Again, I believe you owe your readers an apology for this “cover story,” which I think it truly was, in as much as it was an attempt to provide Putin cover and justifications for his actions, so reminiscent of Georgia. Just very offensive.
