Letter: Obama’s foreign policy is contrary to our interests
For years, President Obama has been telling us that al-Qaida is “on the run.” Now we learn that it is “on the run” to bomb U.S. embassies and kill Americans.
Obama responds with closures of about 20 embassies and consulates, and a global travel warning. Unfortunately that means al-Qaida is a threat right here in the United States because terrorists can get here from Canada or Mexico through our inadequately protected borders.
On their way to attack our embassies and people, terrorists have stopped off in Libya and Syria to collect the arms and aid that the Obama administration has been providing them. This administration also aided the enemy by revealing how we discovered the terror threats.
In Afghanistan, the Obama administration is paying contractors that are providing material support to the insurgency, which may also support global jihad. The inspector general states, “I am deeply troubled that the U.S. military can pursue, attack and even kill terrorists and their supporters, but that some in the U.S. government believe we cannot prevent these same people from receiving a government contract.”
Obama’s foreign policy in the Middle East has been so contrary to American interests that, as his pastor, Reverend Jeremiah Wright, says, “America’s chickens are coming home to roost.”
The Muslim terrorists that Obama has encouraged, armed and funded are now a threat to American embassies and Americans anywhere in the world, including here at home.
