The Obama administration's handling of the Syria crisis has been a "disaster of unparalleled magnitude," Oliver North said Thursday.

"Now [Russian President Vladimir Putin] has the entire Middle East in his hands, because he's the savior of the Obama administration. This is a disaster of unparallel magnitude in our foreign policy," North said on "Fox & Friends," referring to Putin's proposal that Syrian President Bashar Assad place his chemical arsenal under international control to avert a possible U.S. military strike.

North, a military analyst with Fox News, said the Russians are now winning the diplomatic tug of war over Syria, which he suggested was striking for a "dying country."

"They have no credibility in any part of the world. We now have handed them the Middle East and the Mediterranean," he added.

Saying that Putin is now "pulling the puppet strings" in Syria and elsewhere in the Middle East, North predicted the U.S. would eventually be urged by Russia to back away from involvement in other parts of the region.

"They're going to insist America withdraw farther from the Middle East as part of their deal to make peace break out in the Middle East," he said. "The next thing will be, 'Let's go after the Israelis and make them disarm.' That is where this is headed.

North said Obama has "failed globally [in confronting Assad] because he couldn't find an ally besides France."

"This is not a foreign policy," he added.
