Last time Rep. Allen West (R-FL) appeared on Frank Gaffney’s Secure Freedom Radio, the congressman claimed that the “Obama administration has been absolutely horrible as far as the national security of the United States of America and the foreign policy relations in the Middle East,” saying that “we have to have a sure shift in the leadership of this country and it starts on high with President Barack Hussein Obama and we have to have him replaced.” West visited Gaffney again today, and this time went into a tirade alleging that the FBI and Defense Department are “whitewashing” their training materials and reports on terrorist attacks:
He later attacked former President Bill Clinton for appearing in an Obama campaign about the successful mission to kill Osama bin Laden, saying “he let Osama bin Laden get away” and has “zero credibility there.” “Again, I think that the truth may end up coming out about how that decision was made,” West told Gaffney, “we don’t know what really happened.” He went on to suggest that Obama may not have even “made the call” as Gaffney suggested Obama would have blamed Admiral William McRaven is the mission to kill bin Laden had failed:
West even claimed that Obama’s meeting with Hamid Karzai was “a 1930s, Chamberlain, Hitler moment”:
Gaffney: Obama made a kind of, well, I think of it as a whistle-stop campaign appearance in Afghanistan to sign and obviously get our attention towards the ten year security agreement with the Afghans. Does that give you confidence that in fact we’re going to maintain the pressure on the enemy there that we’ve felt necessary to this point or are we in fact really just trying to paper over the impending surrender of the place to the Taliban?
West: I think that right now no one is really sure, Frank. I look at what happened between President Obama and President Karzai as a 1930s, Chamberlain, Hitler moment. There is not going to be peace in our time.
