Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-OK) agreed with a conservative talk show host’s claim during an interview yesterday that President Obama is “on the other side” when it comes to US foreign policy interests in the Mideast.
Speaking to the Republican lawmaker, host Lars Larson said that “when you look at what this President has done in Egypt, in Syria, in Libya, in Iraq, in other places, it’s almost like he’s on the other side.”
“Well don’t forget Iran,” the senator added.
“I have to agree with you,” Inhofe continued. “I’m not a conspirator either but I wonder, there’s such a repetition, we are over and over again, it’s always — the other guys are always the good guys and we’re the bad guys. Then you look at it through the eyes of the Israelis — Netanyahu shakes his head and wonders why in the world we didn’t learn on 9/11 that the threat is out there and it’s very real — so I’m with you.”
Former defense secretary Donald Rumsfeld has also wondered if Obama “switched sides” in the war on terror.
