Aug. 11 (Bloomberg) -- In today's "Morning Must Read," Bloomberg’s Olivia Sterns recaps the op-ed pieces and analyst notes providing insight behind today's headlines on "Bloomberg Surveillance.”

The internet yourself.

There's something too much out there.

Tom keene's favorite word -- i'm going to get back to what you were talking about earlier, debate brewing over what hillary clinton had to say about president obama's policy in syria.

This is my morning must-read.

It comes from the interview with jeffrey goldberg in the atlantic.

The failure to build up the fighting force of the people who were originators of the protest against assad -- that left behind a big vacuum which the jihadists have now filled.

The president initially said there was no into arm here, no coherent force.

The free syrian army is not something we can arm, they're made up of carpenters and architect and butchers.

Is this 2020? if you wait long enough, you can say there are no good options.

There were moments and things we could've done.

In particular, one year ago.

There was the disagreement wisteria using chemical weapons.

The united states could have used military force in that moment.

I believe we had the potential to change the dynamic, including the dan amick of the opposition.

I do think that there were opportunities.

We keep talking as though there are not foreign domestic and strains.

Nobody wanted that at the time.

It does not matter.

The president has tremendous latitude.

History shows that if you succeed, you bit domestic support.

What hurts you or long-term domestic ventures that fail.

The president has discretion under our constitution to do what he wants and foreign policy.

Is there enough of a free syrian army left to arm?

Now, no.

This gets us to our twitter question of the day.

It hillary right?

The first response, yes, but is it too late to solve?

It looks as if the options are lesser of the evils.

The second response, yes, but no economic interests to go there.

Final answer, no.

Hillary is merely practicing the family art form known as triangulation.

What is that?

We need to get you in trouble this morning.

Are there any isolationists
