These days, it seems almost impossible to speak ill of former POTUS, Barack Obama, without liberals immediately jumping down your throat.
But, it looks like not everyone believes his whole "peace and love" strategy did the country much good, and now a couple people who were particularly close to the former president are speaking up against Obama's politics.
Two of Obama's top foreign policy advisors have revealed that they believe their former boss actually made the world a "more dangerous" place when he cowered down to catastrophic Syria.
Barry Pavel, who acted as director for defense policy and strategy on Obama's national security council from 2008 to 2010, recently broke his silence on the former president's inaction in Syria.
“In Syria, a major mistake was treating it like a humanitarian crisis, when it was a major national security crisis that has caused destabilization on our closest allies in Europe,” Pavel told Fox News. “Syria has been a source of terrorist attacks in Europe and the United States, and future attacks. I worry about that very much.”
Pavel, of course, is referring to Obama's pitiful decision to not enforce his "red line" policy after Syria's cruel leader, President Bashar al-Assad, viciously used chemical weapons on his own people back in 2013.
Instead of taking military action, Obama allegedly made a deal with Assad ordering him to turn over his chemical weapons stockpile, but after the recent attack he ordered on the citizens of Syria, it looks like that agreement didn't prove to be so effective.
In addition to voicing his disapproval with the former president's decisions, Pavel also declared his support for the Trump administration.
“I think the Trump administration is putting the world on notice,” Pavel said. “The U.S. can use military force to achieve particular goals without getting mired in a protracted conflict.”
Gary Samore, Obama’s arms and weapons of mass destruction coordinator for a full presidential term, also agrees with that sentiment.
“I applaud Trump,” Samore responded when asked about the strike on Syria.
“It was the kind of strike that Obama was planning — a limited military attack against the airfields in order to deter Assad from carrying out additional chemical weapons attacks, but he decided not to use it. Obama made a huge mistake by saying he was going to go to Congress for authorization, it turned out he did not have the votes,” he explained.
We can't say we're too surprised to learn that Obama's own council members disapproved of his foreign policy, but we're also happy to see intelligent officials publicly endorsing President Trump's "act, don't talk" character. Maybe soon, everyone will come to their senses and realize that Trump is the best hope for our country.
