That seems to be the sport of the year, well in most cases the last 6 years, to blame Obama for whatever is in the news of the day. The crashed economy, Ebola virus (btw, do we really need a logo for a disease?),………I could continue to list all the possibilities but instead just pick a subject and I am positive that you can find someone who can pin it on Obama.
In the news is of course the outbreak in West Africa…..shootings…..and of course the big elephant in the room…ISIS.
And yes someone is blaming the rise of ISIS on, who else? OBAMA.
I have heard all the Right wing excuses for the rise of ISIS and even a few from the Left….but the best accuser is a prince from Saudi Arabia……..
Saudi Arabia‘s Prince Turki al-Faisal on Tuesday blamed the United States and Europe for the rise of the Islamic State.
“Had America and Europe listened to the kingdom and provided the moderate opposition with anti-tank, anti-aircraft and artillery weapons, we would not have had to deploy our air forces to face the challenge of [the Islamic State],” Faisal said in the keynote address of the annual Arab-US policy conference put together by the National Council on US-Arab Relations. “These terrorists filled the void because of this neglect of the genuine opposition. And while Assad continued to bomb and gas his people, the moderate opposition had to fight on two fronts.”
Faisal is often trotted out to declare publicly what current Saudi officials say in private. Last year, he told Al-Monitor in an interview on the sidelines of the NCUSAR conference that there was a “high level of disappointment” with the Obama administration’s Syria policy.
May I ask……what prevented these toads from doing what it took to fuel the conflict?
I love it when these people trot out and make public statements to cover their butts.
Saudi Arabia is the home of Wahhabism which is at the core of the extremists beliefs of ISIS and Al-Qaeda. Plus substantial funding for these groups flow out of places like Saudi Arabia and Qatar..
Yes the CIA is partially to blame for the rise of ISIS….but to lay it all on the shoulders of Obama is just ignorant……I mean would they want the US to lay all the blame on the kingdom and its royal family?
It could be asked….just what did the kingdom do to prevent the rise of ISIS?….they claim they warned the US and Europe of the rise of ISIS but yet did very little to do anything about that rise.
They are safe and secure because they, the Saudis, know that the West will not let anything happen to them …..and why is that?
We all know the answer too damn well……..don’t we?
