I am of the opinion Obama saw this as a way to appease/ get credit among the Muslim world. Like you said we have supported thugs before.

As he has done his entire time in office, try to appease the Muslim world. That's not a bad thing in my mind, but Obama has taken it to the extreme, including this immigration disaster that is allowing, who knows how many, who would do Americans harm, into the country freely.
At the risk of being called a conspiracy theorist, and certain to be anyway, does not anyone question the agenda when Iran, Syria, open border in the south, Cuba, and much more are looked at as a whole? Which all have ended with Russia taking the lead globally. That much is not in question. These foreign policy decisions, looked at individually, are not all terrible decisions, & everyone will agree or disagree on them.
But, when I add them all together I can not think of a good reason for any American president to have 'appeased' so much. And any agenda, if one exists, could really only be considered to weaken this country's status globally. I'm open to other opinions, thoughts, or whatever on it too. But, unless it's just pure, unadulterated & with unheeded advice, stupidity by Obama I honestly can not think of another reason.
Said from a very slight right leaning point of view.
