Obama's foreign policy in Middle East contrary to our interests

  • Published in Letters

To The Daily Sun,
For years, President Obama has been telling us that al Qaeda is "on the run." Now we learn that they are "on the run" to bomb U.S. embassies and kill Americans. President Obama responds with closures of about 20 embassies and consulates and a global travel warning. Unfortunately that means al Qaeda is a threat right here in the U.S. 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."

President Obama's foreign policy in the Middle East has been so contrary to American interests that, as his pastor, Reverend Wright, says, "America's chickens are coming home to roost". The Muslim terrorists that President Obama has encouraged, armed, and funded are now a threat to American embassies and Americans anywhere in the world, including here at home.
