A stunning new report from Fox News exposes Barack Obama’s failures in the Middle East in devastating detail.
The wreckage from the failed policies of the last administration touched nearly every corner of the globe with the backlash specifically troubling in Europe.
Obama compounded Bush’s original blunder and threw the world into a chaos that we are still dealing with.
We knew it was bad but this new report shocked many with just how bad it was. From Fox News:
Bandar bin Sultan, who served as the head of Saudi intelligence and later as the Saudi ambassador to the United States, lashed out against Obama in a wide-ranging interview with the Independent Arabia, a newly launched publication in London.
He said that the late Saudi King Abdullah told Obama in their last phone call that “I did not expect that [after] this long life, I would see [the day] when an American president lies to me,” according to the Jerusalem Post.
The late king referred to Obama’s so-called “red line” he set it out in 2012, promising to retaliate against the Syrian regime if chemical weapons were used against civilians.
The former ambassador criticized Obama for promising one thing, but then doing the opposite, effectively setting the region back 20 years due to foreign policy errors.
As an example, bin Sultan cites Obama’s opposition to Iran and public promises to curb Iranian activities, yet later he ignored the Saudis and negotiated the nuclear accord with the regime, cementing a deep mistrust with the Obama administration.
Such moves in the region only emboldened Russia and Iran to spread their influence and led them to enter Syria and interfere in the civil war with horrific results.
Regarding the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, bin Sultan said that the late Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat committed a “crime” against his people by rejecting the peace plan proposed by former president Bill Clinton.
The former ambassador said that he met with the feared leader of Iran’s al Quds Force, Gen. Qassem Soleimani, during a visit he made to Tehran.
“A coincidence led me to getting to (see) Soleimani face to face,” bin Sultan said. “Until then, we had [only] heard of him without seeing him.
