Obama’s Ridiculous Foreign Policy

Let’s review Obama’s foreign policy blunders since becoming President (and of course following Obama’s U.S. apology tour and bowing to foreign leaders):

Russia – Putin laughs at Obama as he takes over the Crimea region of the Ukraine.

Syria – Unstable and currently in the middle of a revolution. What’s worse, Obama makes a deal with Putin and genocidal president Assad for Syria to destroy their chemical weapons. Thus far, Assad and Syria have failed to meet the chemical weapon treaty deadlines.

Libya – Obama went to war unilaterally against Qaddafi. Less than a year later weaponry used to arm the opposition force was used to attack Western sites including attacking the U.S. Embassy in Benghazi killing four Americans. To date, there have been no arrests and no one has been held accountable.

Afghanistan – Thousands of American soldiers have been killed or wounded under Obama’s watch. Yet, Obama is scaling down the U.S. effort to fight the Taliban and will be exiting the country in a losing effort.

Bin Laden – Obama successfully finds and kills Osama Bin Laden. However, Bin Laden was found with intelligence that was garnered during the Bush years that was uncovered using enhanced interrogation techniques.

Iraq – Obama inherits a stable democratic country from the Bush administration, but today terrorists are making huge inroads because Obama completely withdrew all U.S. troops.

Egypt – Obama supports a coup and today the country is unstable and mostly led by terrorist groups such as the Muslim Brotherhood.

Bowe Bergdahl – Obama negotiates with terrorists and trades 5 Taliban generals for a U.S. deserter and traitor.

Iran and North Korea – Both rogue nations are closer to obtaining a nuclear bomb and long range missiles to transport them.

Drones – Obama has expanded the drone program which has resulted in the following: More dead civilians; less captured terrorists and therefore less intelligence; and Obama is the first President to order and kill U.S. citizens without due process.

Enemy Combatants – Enemy Combatants have more rights than U.S. soldiers (while U.S. soldiers must face military tribunals, enemy combatants are now tried in U.S. courts) and it was recently uncovered – better healthcare.

The White House outed the CIA station chief in Afghanistan. Remember, Scooter Libby went to jail for the outing of a CIA desk jockey in Virginia in the Bush Administration.

NSA – Obama was caught monitoring the phone conversations and emails of our allied leaders.

Honduras – Obama failed to support the 2009 coup which ousted President Zelaya for violating their Constitution.

Israel – Obama still has yet to visit our ally, the only Democratic nation in the Middle East. Still Obama has pushed for Israel, and only Israel, to make concessions in the Israel / Palestinian peace talks.

I am sure I missed a couple dozen more foreign policy blunders.

  1. Looks to me like you summed it up very well, Patrick. Obama is a loser on every front.
