Onan Coca: Republicans and Democrats Join to Criticize the Obama Administration’s Foreign Policies

November 30, 2015


Over the weekend several high-ranking and influential Republicans and Democrats went on the important national media shows to criticize the Obama administration’s misguided foreign policy plans.

Chris Christie told CNN’s Jake Tapper that Obama had “no credibility” when it came to ISIS. In fact, Christie said that Obama is “often wrong, never in doubt” on ISIS!

ISIS doesn't seem to be concerned about civilian casualties, Jake. We need to get real and bring our allies together and bring rules of engagement to take on ISIS in a significant and direct way.

Obviously the president is wrong when he said on Thursday of last week that ISIS was contained. The next day the attacks started in Paris.

So this administration has no credibility in giving us any assessment of how it's going. We have the attacks in Mali now. He said al Qaeda was on the run. Obviously that's wrong as well. He said our borders were secure. That's wrong. This president has been wrong.

When I think back on this administration, the way I'll think of President Obama is: "Often wrong but never in doubt."

The Obama team probably wasn’t surprised to get criticized by Christie, but they were likely blown away by the next attack they faced on CBS. The ranking Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), appeared on CBS’ Face the Nation to chide the administration’s approach to fighting ISIS.

John Dickerson: You had been skeptical of the administration's approach. did the briefing from sector to kerry make you think that that approach is sufficient to the job at the moment? 

Dianne Feinstein: I don't think the approach is sufficient to the job. I think they are general principles, and the general principles in terms of the administration strategy, too, but...

I'm concerned that we don't have the time. And we don't have years. We need to be aggressive now because ISIL is a quasi state.

ISIL has 30,000 fighters, it's got a civil infrastructure, it's got funding. It's spreading in other countries, it's a big, big problem. Now what you see I think in other places is a competition developing from other terrorist organizations. But ISIL is something apart. It's enormously strong, it has to be dealt with in a very strong manner.

This kind of one-two punch should be a massive blow to the Obama team’s credibility, but thus far the media has been silent on these criticisms.
