When I saw on the news about Obama alienating Saudi Arabia and Israel in favor of Iran and Yemen, I wasn't at all surprised. Ed Morrissey has Richard Engel's report: "I know several people in the US military who were taken by surprise by this [action in Yemen]. Senior officials who would have been expected to know that there was going to be an operation in Yemen, they didn’t. They were finding out about it almost in real time.
And they believe, and some US members of Congress believe, that the
reason Saudi Arabia and other states didn’t tell the US that it was
going to launch this war against Shi’ite backed, or Iranian-backed
rebels in Yemen, is because Saudi Arabia and other countries simply
don’t trust the United States anymore, don’t trust this
administration — think the administration is working to befriend Iran to
try and make a deal in Switzerland, and therefore didn’t think that the
intelligence frankly would be secure."
I applaud the Saudi-led coalition. At least they know who the enemy is, unlike Obama. And congratulations to them for realizing what we have known for the past 6 destructive years: this administration simply cannot be trusted.
