It is a sad and costly fact, like during his eight disastrous years of presidency, Obama groupies dominate the media.
Of course the Trump groupies do have their own platforms, but, overall, Obama groupies are the ones who have the lion’s share of the media.
Alas, the Obama groupies, to this day, refuse to face hard facts and ban any reporting of those who do so, even if it is from a former high official of Obama administration.
As someone who adored Obama the man and despised his reckless and feckless foreign policy, I find no pleasure in reproducing the quotes from former Obama officials attesting to his disastrous policy, which many millions paid, continue to pay and will be paying for years to come with their lives and loss of everything including homelands.
Here is Fred Hof, former Obama appointed ambassador:
“President Obama would caricature external alternatives by creating and debating straw men: invented idiots calling for the invasion and occupation of Syria.
For over three years, I tried and failed to do that which I also tried and failed to do as a so-called senior government official: persuade the Obama administration that its Syria policy was helping to expand and prolong a humanitarian abomination while giving our adversaries—Assad, al-Qaeda, Russia, and Iran—the idea that the United States was all talk and no action. Sadly, the administration sacrificed Syrian civilians and American credibility for the mistaken notion that Iran required appeasement in Syria as the price for a nuclear agreement. The reckless impunity we witness today of Russia’s Vladimir Putin is a poisoned dividend of the Obama administration’s Syria policy.
It was not until the fall of 2014 when it became clear what was motivating him. The Wall Street Journal’s Jay Solomon reported on a “secret” letter from the president to Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ali Khamenei, in which (among other things) Mr. Obama reportedly assured Khamenei that American military power aimed at ISIS (ISIL, Islamic State, Daesh) in Syria would not target the Assad regime. But why give Khamenei such a reckless assurance, one that would surely be relayed to Assad, enhancing his already massive sense of impunity, with deadly consequences for Syrian civilians?
The answer was that Mr. Obama wanted, more than anything else, a nuclear deal with Iran. This would be his foreign policy legacy jewel in the crown. This would supposedly bring Iran in from the cold and ultimately transform the Islamic Republic from purveyor of state terror to good neighbor. Such was the mindset that considered Syrian lives expendable for a higher cause.”
Truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth will pave the way for salvation from the morass.
Airtight sanctions, a la against the despicable South Africa apartheid, works. U.S. lawmakers get to it.
Ps. On March 28, 2012 President Obama conferred on Hof the rank of ambassador in connection with his new duties as special adviser for transition in Syria. Hof was previously the special coordinator for regional affairs in the US Department of State's Office of the Special Envoy for Middle East Peace, where he advised Special Envoy George Mitchell on the full range of Arab-Israeli peace issues falling under his purview and focusing on Syria-Israel and Israel-Lebanon matters.
