Obama’s Middle East Strategy Was Clearly the Worst Foreign Policy Strategy in History
President Obama’s failed policies created a nightmare in Iraq, Syria, Libya an the entire Middle East.
President Obama, Hillary Clinton and the entire Obama Administration do not want Americans to know about Obama’s failed policies in the Middle East. However, their actions were so egregious that the results speak for themselves.
Documents obtained and released by Judicial Watch from a 2012 defense intelligence report on the civil war in Syria openly state that the policy of the US and its allies was to support the Salafist opposition to the Syrian regime ran by president Bashar al-Assad. This opposition was spearheaded by Al Qaeda in Iraq (AQI) and the Islamic State of Iraq which soon morphed into ISIS.
What is shocking about this report was that Obama knew that the Syrian opposition was dominated by al Qaeda in Iraq and Obama-Clinton went ahead and supported them anyways with ISIS created as a result.
Thanks to documents released by WikiLeaks we also now know that Google, along with Hillary Clinton, helped al-Qaeda and other groups like the Muslim Brotherhood acquire new members at the onset of the Syrian conflict – an effort created and supported by the Obama administration.. Then once recruited, Obama not only armed radical Islamists in Syria, he also paid them salaries.
At about the same time Obama pulled US troops from Iraq. Many of the cities in Iraq that US forces had given their lives to defend and set free from radical Islamists were handed over to ISIS as a direct result of Obama’s policies.
Once ISIS took over Iraq all hell broke loose. ISIS captured women and made them sex slaves. They auctioned them off.
Mass graves were reported where ISIS stripped down captured Syrian soldiers and then shot them dead in the desert.
Numerous beheadings were filmed by the evil terrorists and shared with the world. Some of the victims were Americans. Obama’s response was to go golfing.
Thousands of Yazidis and Iraqis were slaughtered by ISIS while Obama partied. Obama did not care nor did he take credit for the atrocities being his fault. The ISIS massacres will go down in history as the great Holocaust of the Obama years. Terror, bloodshed and death occurred on a daily basis while Obama did nothing.
Obama next worked with Iran – the very entity that was responsible for the deaths of 500 American soldiers in Iraq. As explained in Obamabomb: A Dangerous and Growing National Security Fraud, the nuclear deal with Iran and the Obama administration’s defense of it are rife with deceptions and outright lies. False narratives were provided by the Obama administration to the press to praise the terrible deal that involved the Obama administration providing $150 billion in sanctions relief to Iran after Iran complied with certain requirements. Verification of Iran complying with the deal and not working on gaining nuclear bomb capabilities were not in place in the deal and Obama may have broken the law in ensuring the deal’s execution.
Months after it occurred, news broke that the Obama administration secretly sent $400 million in cash equivalents on an unmarked cargo plane to Iran on January 17, 2016. The cash transfer facilitated a swap that day of four innocent Americans held by Iran. Seven Iranian criminals held by the US were also released. Obama said that it was not a ransom for the release of the prisoners but later the State Department admitted it was. Another $1.3 billion was later reported as also being provided to Iran.
In addition to the cash ransom from Obama, Iraq was basically handed over to Iran. The Iraqi forces fighting ISIS are supported by Iranian’s harshest soldiers. In a nutshell, Obama’s policy with Iraq was to allow Iran to take it over.
Former Speaker of the House, Newt Gingrich, stated that nobody could have predicted that the US foreign policy with Iran could have failed so decisively as it did with the Obama/Kerry/Clinton deal with Iran.
In addition to all the above, we also know that Obama armed jihadis in Libya. Obama’s entire Middle East strategy was one of creating death, deception and suffering. Obama’s policies of assisting terrorists by providing them money and arms – was clearly the worst foreign policy strategy in US history ever.
