Charles Krauthammer talks with Sean Hannity in this powerful video. Here’s my summary, but it is not a transcript and much is not a direct quote, so watch the video if you have time. With Obama’s Cairo speech, he decided to retreat, to pull back the tide of American power…things don’t happen in a vacuum – Obama doesn’t support the Green Revolution in Iran, shows the Ayatollah tremendous respect – protects them when they are under attack. Obama is nowhere on the Iranian nuclear issue, was uncertain during the Arab Spring. He leads from behind. When you withdraw the power and the influence of the strongest country on earth from a region, the vacuum will be filled. The Salafists, the Islamists understand this is their opening. No one asks what the US thinks about Syria, they are focused on Russian and what Russia thinks and is doing about Syria. The US is irrelevant.
Hey, the Obama administration’s appeasement policies are bearing fruit. Our mortal enemies are rallying the entire Middle East around a solid programmatic agenda: to unite against “Zionism and the U.S. government,”
