Hussein Obama is no stranger to assigning unearned blame or to taking undeserved credit for the deeds of others. To hear him tell it, you’d almost think he was the one who personally fired the shots that took out Osama bin Laden.
He’s been a spectator on the sidelines as the situation deteriorated in Iraq, but now he’s publicly positioning himself as being behind the creation of a coalition in the Middle East and North Africa to deal with ISIS.
David Rothkopf, CEO and Editor of “Foreign Policy” says that the coalition for which Obama seeks to take credit has actually existed for some time. He says, “What’s different is that the United States wants in.” He continues saying, “For the past three years people have been saying get involved in Syria, get involved in trying to find a way to push back on these extremist forces. They said it again after ISIS took Fallujah in January.”
He adds, “It’s only now that the United States is saying, ‘okay, we’re ready,’ and that’s not exactly leadership and it’s not exactly putting together [a coalition].”
