Former Republican Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich comments on the Obama Administration otherwise known as the ”Gang that Couldn’t Shoot Straight”. Gingrich said, “If We End Up With an Islamist Regime in Egypt, It Will Be Catastrophic”. Egypt on the verge of exploding, the Middle East anxiously watching and we have rank amateurs in office residing over US foreign policy.
“This is the most incompetent performance (by the Obama administration) since Jimmy Carter presided over the collapse of the American Alliance in Iran in 1978-79.”
“People will realize that this is a very weak government led by a group of amateurs in foreign policy.”
Remember when Joe Biden said that Obama was not ready to be President during the 2008 campaign … “the job does not lend itself to on the job training” (VIDEO).
From Mediaite, CIA Director Leon Panetta testified to Congress today of a “strong likelihood” that Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak would step down based on media reports. WHAT!!! A CIA director based his comments on media reports and not intelligence. UNREAL!
The worse part isn’t that Panetta was basing his statement on on media reports (and not intelligence.) No, National Intelligence Director James Clapper outdid Panetta with his erroneous claim that the Muslim Brotherhood is a “secular” organization.
More from the NY Times:
American officials said Mr. Panetta was basing his statement not on secret intelligence but on media broadcasts, which began circulating before he sat down before the House Intelligence Committee. But a senior administration official said Mr. Obama had also expected that Egypt was on the cusp of dramatic change. Speaking at Northern Michigan University in Marquette, he said, “We are witnessing history unfold,” adding, “America will do everything we can to support an orderly and genuine transition to democracy.”
