Former Iranian Hostage Don Cooke Compares Obama’s Foreign Policy to Jimmy Carter … Using the Same Ambivalence as Carter in the 1970′s
Here is a ringing endorsement against Barack Obama and his foreign policy failures.
Don Cooke, former Iranian hostage who was taken hostage by Islamist students and militants at the U.S. Embassy on November 4, 1979 in Tehran at age 23 and held for 444 days, was interviewed by FOX News over the weekend and stated that Barack Obama is showing the same ambivalent foreign policy as Jimmy Carter. There is something to be proud of, having the same ambivalent foreign policy as another failed Democrat president.
From the FOX News Insider:
Cooke said the crisis started during a period – under President Jimmy Carter – of “ambivalent” foreign policy toward the Middle East. He said only after the election of Ronald Reagan did the Iranian government realize the U.S. was serious and release the hostages.
“At this point, (Iran) sees ambivalence in the U.S. foreign policy and they don’t see any particular reason to stop (their nuclear program). … The sanctions are starting to bite, but I wish we had gone to these very punishing sanctions a bit earlier. Maybe we might see results by now,” Cooke said.
