Barry, by design, has turned the region into a hotbed of Islamic-terrorism that has fanned-out out into Europe, here, and around the world. And need I mention his Valarie Jarrett inspired/induced love for Iran? On the way out, Barry “NWO” Davis can once again kowtow to the Saudi king, maybe kissing his royal bottom.
