The Saudis Go To Work on Obama

Why The White House Ignored All Those Warnings About ISIS – The Daily Beast

On November 1, 2013, Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki visited the White House, and made a rather stunning request. Maliki, who celebrated when the last U.S. troops left his country in 2011, asked Obama to quietly send the military back into Iraq and help his beleagured Air Force develop targets for air strikes; that’s how serious the threat from Sunni insurgents led by the extremist group ISIS had become. 

This sort of crappy “analysis” is all part of the huge domestic Saudi propaganda push to portray the problems in Iraq as being caused by not supporting the Sunni Arab clients there strongly enough.   The author, Eli Lake, whether he realizes it or not, is acting as a Saudi propagandist here.  I wonder if he’s registered as a foreign agent yet?

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
