The Obama administration’s reluctance to intervene in Syria is yet another example of their policy of “leading from behind,” GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney charged in an interview with Bill Hemmer on Fox’s America’s Newsroom.

Romney, who sewed up the Republican nomination with his win in Texas Tuesday, was commenting on White House reaction to the carnage in Syria, including the massacre of more than 100 civilians in the town of Houla. Nearly half of the victims were children, according to various reports.

However, the White House has said that it did believe military action was appropriate at this time but spokesman Jay Carney added that noting was off the table. The United States and 10 other nations have expelled Syrian diplomats.

“The world looks to America to lead and we’ve been sitting in the back burner hoping things would become arranged in a way that was attractive to the world,” Romney said. “But frankly what’s happening in Syria is unacceptable . . .They continue with a posture of leading from behind.”
