On Friday former CIA officer, Gary Bernsten, said that President Obama has lost ‘control of the Middle’ East, directly following the attacks in Nice, France, where 84 died and hundreds were injured.
Appearing on Fox & Friends, Bernsten noted that,
“This is going to get very, very ugly.”
“The president of the United States, as Newt Gingrich has stated, has failed in his responsibilities to defend the United States. He has lost control of the Middle East. It is in flames, and that is what he will leave when he leaves office.”
“We can take care of these ISIS thugs in about a month.”

Obama issued his standard “canned” statement following this latest terrorist tragedy, by condemning the attacks and vowing to bring the perpetrators to justice. In the case of Nice, the attacker was identified as 31-year-old Tunisian born Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhel, who was also a Nice resident.
“On behalf of the American people, I condemn in the strongest terms what appears to be a horrific terrorist attack.”
“We have offered any assistance that they may need to investigate this attack and bring those responsible to justice.”
“We stand in solidarity and partnership with France, our oldest ally, as they respond to and recover from this attack.”
It appears that Obama is more concerned with demonising Russia, expanding NATO into East Europe, and most notably, trying to overthrow the democratically elected Assad government in Syria…than actually working to fight and destroy ISIS.
As President of the United States, Barack Obama is a complete an utter foreign policy disaster.
