The main focus of President Obama’s foreign policy is to secure measly promises from ruthless killers and despots to behave peacefully. Like Neville Chamberlain taking Hitler’s word that he would not invade Poland, such weakness on the part of our supposed Head of State only invites further betrayals and aggressions by foreign powers and terrorists.
After Obama’s State Department violated the law in order to unlawfully trade five high-ranking terrorists to secure the release of one American deserter, the world’s weakest leader later groveled to Iranian tyrants to secure a deal that would infuse the Iran, the largest state-sponsor of terrorism in the world, with enough cash to keep them in suicide vests for decades in exchange for the mere promise that they would slow their development of a nuclear bomb.
Now, as the most-disastrous presidency in the history of this nation winds-down, Obama is rumored to be considering an executive order to circumvent Congress’ authority and close the detention facility at Guantanamo Bay (Gitmo) and may even be considering surrendering the entire American-held base to Raul Castro’s communist regime.
The Obama Administration has been releasing terrorists after wagging their finger at them and instructing them to be on their best behavior.
As he testified before a Senate appropriations committee on Wednesday, Kerry was informed that a former Gitmo detainee released by the Obama Administration has returned to fighting for Al Qaeda.
Kerry’s response? “He’s not supposed to be doing that.”
Republican Senator Mark Kirk told Kerry,
“Let me just ask one question,” Kirk began. “I want to show you a picture of Ibrahim al Qosi, who was recently released by the administration to the Sudanese, and he appeared on some al Qaeda videos recruiting people for AQAP [al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula]…
Now that he’s out, I would hope we would end the policy of issuing terrorists to terrorist nations, and where they can get out.”
Kerry paused for a moment and replied,
“Well, Senator, he’s not supposed to be doing that. And there are consequences for that, and there will be. But apart from that, the fact is that we’ve got people who’ve been held without charges for 13 years, 14 years in some cases. That’s not American, that’s not how we operate.”
One could only imagine John Kerry as a 911 operator. “He’s stabbing you? Well, he’s not supposed to be doing that. I intend to write a strongly-worded letter to that man about his actions.”
al Qosi was an aide to Osama Bin Laden and taken to Guantanamo bay in 2002. He was released ten years later and pledged to live a quiet, peaceful life. Currently, roughly 30% of terrorists released by the Obama Administration return to terrorism.
He has recently emerged, however, as the face of propaganda videos for Al Qaeda which calls for a takeover of Saudi Arabia and an end to a Saudi-American alliance.
The entirety of our foreign policy is predicated upon betraying our longtime allies like Israel and taking the word of despotic leaders and corrupt regimes as the rest of the world mobilizes militarily and economically against the U.S.
Our president saves his toughest approaches for dealing with his fellow Americans who dare to disagree with him while, simultaneously, cowering from the demands of foreign leaders and allowing our nation to be represented on the world stage by a eunuch.
