President Trump in the last week has taken a stronger stance against the Assad regime in Syria that President Obama did in his entire eight years in office. The administration was quick to point this out. While President Obama told the world they were able to eliminate the chemical weapons issue behind closed doors the recent chemical weapons attack on Syria proved that wrong. Over one hundred people, who were mostly young children, had to find that out the hard way.
Some revelations prove that President Obama KNEW that’s Syria had not gotten rid of their chemical weapons program. This dates back to 2014. Even though the White House had promised the public they had. Now the public is pointing to the former administration for not taking action after drawing a red line in the sand with chemical weapons and then never following through on the promise.
No wonder President Obama lied. He negotiated with the Russians to deplete the chemical weapons stockpile, of course, they would lie about it. Just as they are standing by Syria’s side now they stood by them then and promised something they never had any intention of following through with.
Secretary of State John Kerry had promised they had,
“Got 100 percent of the declared weapons out of Syria.”
National Security Advisor Susan Rice told the media that the Obama administration had been,
“Able to get the Syrian government to voluntarily and verifiably give up its chemical weapons stockpile.”
They had failed, they knew it, and they were lying this whole time about it. The gaps in his associate’s statements prove just that. They have just done a really good job at covering up their lies. Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, under former President Obama, said the following when appearing before Congress,
“We assess that Syria has not declared all the elements of its chemical weapons program to the Chemical Weapons Convention.”
At best the Obama administration wasn’t aware that Syria hadn’t been forthcoming in declaring all of their chemical weapons. At worst they knew and they overlooked it and then told the public they were all gone giving them false hope of safety and security. Their celebrations of removing all chemical weapons without having to achieve it militarily were hypocritical and false.
President Obama’s policies were a diplomatic failure and now young innocent children must pay the price with their life. President Trump is finally giving hope to the Syrian people that their pain and loss will not go unnoticed. He will not embolden ISIS or the Assad regime and the world is a better place because of it.
President Obama should be ashamed of himself.
