‘We’re In A GO**AMN FREE FALL Here…’ – Obama’s Former Ambassador to Iraq
While the administration and their overzealous worshipers in the media keep trying to distract from the world going up in flames because of Obama’s flailing foreign policy, it appears that some are waking up to what conservatives (like me and scoop) have been saying for literally years.
Barack Obama faces a slew of Middle East crises that some call the worst in a generation, as new chaos from Yemen to Iraq — along with deteriorating U.S.-Israeli relations — is confounding Obama’s efforts to stabilize the region and strike a nuclear deal with Iran.
The meltdown has Obama officials defending their management of a region that some call impossible to control, even as critics say U.S. policies there are partly to blame for the spreading anarchy.
“If there’s one lesson this administration has learned, from President Obama’s 2009 Cairo speech through the Arab Spring, it’s that when it comes to this region, nothing happens in a linear way — and precious little is actually about us, which is a hard reality to accept,” said a senior State Department official.
That’s all well and good. Now let’s get a more honest assessment of the Obama foreign policy:
Not everyone is so forgiving. “We’re in a goddamn free fall here,” said James Jeffrey, who served as Obama’s ambassador to Iraq and was a top national security aide in the George W. Bush White House.
Yeah, pretty much. And if you want to feel really bad about the whole deal, here’s a harrowing quote from another State Department official:
“The truth is, you can dwell on Yemen, or you can recognize that we’re one agreement away from a game-changing, legacy-setting nuclear accord on Iran that tackles what every one agrees is the biggest threat to the region,” the official said.
