President Trump didn’t mince words: Obama is to blame for Iran’s extended reign of terror. Unlike his predecessors, President Trump isn’t afraid to attack Obama for his policies.
Review Obama’s foreign policy screw ups with Iran to get an idea of whose side this man was really on.
Let’s begin in 2011:
In that year under the watchful eye of Obama, Iran captured an American drone. They then publicly displayed the drone like ISIS cutting off the head of an American serviceman. Christian Science Monitor wrote:
Hours after Iran state TV displayed the cream-colored American bat-wing RQ-170 “Sentinel” drone – its undercarriage hidden by banners of a US flag, with stars replaced by skulls and marked with anti-US slogans – Iranian officials said the spy craft was proof of enduring US hostility toward Iran.
“Iran will target all US military bases around the world,” in case of further violations, warned conservative lawmaker Mohammad Kossari today. Iran’s response would be “terrifying.”
US officials confirmed with “high confidence” that the drone displayed by Iran is almost certainly the one reported lost last by US forces in Afghanistan last week. It was on an intelligence mission to hunt evidence in Iran of nuclear weapons work.
This drone was so intact, that one has to wonder if Obama didn’t order his sissified military to land the plane directly in Tehran. As we’ve said all along, it was quite the clever money laundering scam.
See for yourself.
Former U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney criticised Obama’s decisions on the drone, saying that, after the aircraft went down, the president should have ordered an air strike within Iran: “The right response to that would have been to go in immediately after it had gone down and destroy it. You can do that from the air … and, in effect, make it impossible for them to benefit from having captured that drone.” Instead, “he asked nicely for them to return it, and they aren’t going to”.
On 17 January 2012, an Iranian company said it would send miniature, pink, toy versions of the captured drone to President Obama as a response to the request for sending the drone back.
Remember when Iran embarrassed Obama and the U.S. Navy?
As CNN reported:
Despite 10 American sailors being in Iranian custody, President Barack Obama stuck to his State of the Union script Tuesday night. As he made no mention of the incident, instead touting his nuclear deal with Tehran.
“We built a global coalition, with sanctions and principled diplomacy, to prevent a nuclear-armed Iran. And as we speak, Iran has rolled back its nuclear program, shipped out its uranium stockpile, and the world has avoided another war,” Obama said, in his only mention of Iran in his final State of the Union speech.
Just hours earlier, he was alerted that the sailors were being held in Iran after two small U.S. naval craft entered Iranian waters, according to U.S. defense officials.
Arizona Sen. John McCain, once Obama’s GOP challenger for the presidency, blasted the speech for not including any reference to the incident in the Persian Gulf.
“Ten American sailors have been taken into custody in Iran,” he said in a statement. “But President Obama completely omitted this latest example of Iran’s provocative behavior so as not to interfere with his delusional talking points about his dangerous nuclear deal with Iran.
House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy also slammed the omission.
“I was very concerned that he’s missing where the challenge of the world is with security — he sits and talks positively about Iran when they just took 10 of our Navy sailors,” he said after the speech.
In both instances, Iran openly mocked Barack Obama. And that’s not the half of it.
Even after Obama was publicly sodomized by the Iranians twice, he did the unthinkable. He entered into a nuclear agreement with them.
Any sane American would question a man who would enter into nuclear agreement that offered no serious checks and balances.
If that were all Obama did with respect to Iran, one might give him a pass. But shipping $1.8 billion in the dark of night to the regime of terror showcased abject ignorance that borders on treason.
