Pompeo, at site of Obama's address to Muslim world, rebukes his legacy:
Posted 10 January 2019 - 11:37 AM
He told you that 9/11 led my country to abandon its ideals, particularly in the Middle East, he said at the American University in Cairo. He told you that the United States and the Muslim world needed a new beginning. The results of these misjudgments have been dire.
Pompeo said that under Obama, the U.S. abandoned its allies and was timid about asserting itself, that the U.S. grossly underestimated the tenacity and viciousness of radical Islamism, and kept silent as Iranians tried to rise up against the regime in Tehran.
He also criticized Obama-era policy for wishful thinking [that] led us to look the other way as Hezbollah built up its weaponry in Lebanon, and for doing nothing as Syrian President Bashar Assad gassed his own people.
He then took another swipe at the 2015 Iran nuclear deal -- from which the U.S. withdrew last year. The U.S. has since re-imposed economic sanctions on the country, including on oil exports.
Our eagerness to address only Muslims, not nations, ignored the rich diversity of the Middle East, and frayed old bonds. It undermined the concept of the nation-state, the building block of international stability, he said. And our desire for peace at any cost led us to strike a deal with Iran, our common enemy.

The Obama admin made up "Arab Spring" to destabilize the ME, and we got what we see now. Is there really any debate on this?
It's been a bad year. My old favorite restaurant closed down, and my new favorite restaurant sucks.
