Tom Cotton Manages To Blame Obama For Separatist Groups Shooting Down Plane Over Ukraine
Tom Cotton, the Republican congressman running for U.S. Senate in Arkansas, appeared on “Washington Watch” yesterday to criticize President Obama’s foreign policy, even managing to link the administration to everything from the downing of flight MH17 by pro-Russian separatists in Ukraine to the atrocities committed against Christians in Iraq … which he said all leads back to the IRS scandal.
He said that America’s enemies have “realized” that Obama is too “slow to react if he reacts at all” on foreign affairs issues, and so “sometimes that means shooting down an airliner full of innocent civilians, including children, in Ukraine; sometimes that means driving Christians out of a city like Mosul.”
He then told host Tony Perkins, the president of the Family Research Council, that the Obama administration has “a very peculiar form of crisis management that seems to create one worse crisis to get the last crisis off of the newspaper headlines. You went from the IRS scandal to the VA to the Bowe Bergdahl prisoner swap to the Islamic State taking over in Iraq to a civilian airliner being shot out of the skies in Ukraine, it’s hard to imagine they are going to keep this up or what that would mean for America’s national security interests in the world.”
Cotton also claimed that the U.S. had achieved “victory” in the Iraq War until Obama “squandered” it.
