TOP SAUDI OFFICIAL: BARACK OBAMA LIED, SET MIDDLE EAST BACK 20 YEARS | jpost.com
“Obama, Bandar Bin Sultan said, “would promise something and do the opposite.” He spoke critically of the Iran nuclear deal and how the former president spoke about curbing Iran but failed.
Former US president Barack Obama lied to Saudi Arabia when violating the redlines he famously declared regarding Syria’s use of chemical weapons and then not acting when they were used, a former senior Saudi official said in an interview with Independent Arabia.
Bandar bin Sultan served for years as head of Saudi intelligence as well as the Saudi ambassador to the United States. In the interview, he recalled a last phone call between the late Saudi King Abdullah and Obama, during which the Saudi leader told the US president: “I did not expect that [after] this long life, I would see [the day] when an American president lies to me.”
Obama, bin Sultan said, “would promise something and do the opposite.” He said that the president took the Middle East back 20 years and also spoke critically of the Iran nuclear deal and how the former president spoke publicly about curbing Iran’s activities, but then went behind Saudi Arabia’s back and negotiated the nuclear deal.
These policies by Obama, he said, emboldened Russia and Iran and paved the way for them to enter Syria and interfere in the civil war that has raged there since 2011.”
With a secretive deal like the Iran Nuke Deal, that gave Iran money, to continue funding terror networks, Russia a strong hold in the Middle East, Obama sold out long standing allies, for a country that has done nothing, to appease the fear of it’s hostile intentions, toward Israel and the United States.
The picture of $150 Billion loaded on pallets, then into a plane, in the dead of night, speaks volumes to the kind of deal Obama struck with this terror nation.
Obama settled on a deal that didn’t go anywhere near far enough in curbing the long term constraints on Iran’s ability to produce highly enriched uranium and weapons-grade plutonium, as well as support for the most intrusive inspections regime ever negotiated.
Since Obama had resistance among the participants in this deal, he acquiesced and gave in to pressure not to push too far!
Like the Uranium One deal with Russia, that Obama and Clinton negotiated, once again, we gave in and allowed Russia a reset.
And, like everything else in Washington, these deals were one sided and does not include what should have been the best interests of America.
