Krauthammer: 'The meltdown, the collapse of the Obama policy in the Muslim world'

by Carl in Jerusalem

Here's Charles Krauthammer talking about the 9/11 attacks on the US embassy in Cairo and the US consulate in Benghazi.

Let's go to the videotape (Hat Tip: Hyscience via Bad Blue). More after the video.

 I think it's important to point out here that this is the result that Obamawanted all along. From the beginning of his term in office, this President has gone out of his way to deny American exceptionalism, to degrade America's military capabilities and to destroy America's alliances. It's the fruit of a misguided policy but also of a policy that was adopted with the specific intent of bringing about these results.

There are two things that make this scenario even scarier. First is the fact that so many Americans still don't get it. And second, even among those who do get it, there seems to be an assumption that when and if Obama is replaced by someone stronger, all will suddenly be well, as was the case 31 years ago when as soon as Reagan came into office, the hostages at the US embassy in Tehran were released. That is far from certain, particularly if Obama leaves a nuclear Iran behind him.

What could go wrong?
