What will be President Obama’s final move with Iran before he leaves office? Will he seek new treaties? Will he use his phone and pen to bypass Congress? Will he find an Executive Order to accomplish what he cannot get the legislature to agree to? The speculation leads to many scenarios. LTC Allen West has his own surprising prediction in the article below.
As Written By Allen B. West:
Before he leaves office, I predict Obama will carry out this particularly treasonous action…
I went back and checked out to whom President Obama granted his first interview back in January of 2009. Was it to the BBC, Reuters, Associated Press? Nah, it was to Al Arabiya. And this statement by the new president Barack Obama, reported by CBS News, January 28, 2009 says it all: “In his first sit-down interview — which he symbolically granted to pan-Arab satellite network Al Arabiya — Mr. Obama said, “Iran has acted in ways that’s not conducive to peace and prosperity in the region… But I do think that it is important for us to be willing to talk to Iran, to express very clearly where our differences are, but where there are potential avenues for progress.”
“If countries like Iran are willing to unclench their fist, they will find an extended hand from us,” added the president. CBS News’ Leily Lankarani in Tehran reports Iran’s Foreign Ministry spokesman has turned that comment around on Washington. “If there is any clenched fist in the world, it is the fist of the U.S.A.,” Hasan Ghashghavi told a group of journalists Wednesday during a visit to Japan.”
I also went back and watched the two speeches Obama gave in Turkey before the general assembly and in Cairo, Egypt at the university where he requested members of the Muslim Brotherhood be front and center in the audience. Obama certainly did extend a hand, but no one unclenched their fist — certainly not Iran.
As reported by Reuters yesterday, “Iran’s top leader on Wednesday said missiles were key to the Islamic Republic’s future, offering support to the hardline Revolutionary Guards that have drawn criticism from the West for testing ballistic missiles.
Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei supported last year’s nuclear deal with world powers but has since called for Iran to avoid further rapprochement with the United States and its allies, and maintain its economic and military strength.
