Fox News television personality Judge Jeanine Pirro blasted President Barack Obama once again. The outspoken host shared some jarring remarks over the POTUS’ handling of the ongoing Middle East crisis. Judge Jeanine says the president is injecting politics into the handling of ISIS, and in doing so, has caused the United States to adopt a “cut and run” foreign policy.
Sunday, on Justice with Judge Jeanine, Fox’s Pirro led her criticism of Obama with the developing story in the Middle East involving hundreds of Marines reportedly threatened by a contingency of ISIS fighters. Apparently, scores of extremists are surrounding the Al Asad Air Base in Iraq, and are just miles away. Pirro said the president is more concerned with the politics of war instead of waging a stronger war against the militants.
Pirro and other Fox News hosts/contributors say the lack of response from the Obama Administration is creating a potentially deadly situation, one that will dwarf the alleged missteps in Benghazi in terms of loss of life.
“We’re setting ourselves up for a loss of American lives.”
Judge Jeanine, who advocated impeaching the president recently, assailed Obama over his alleged downplaying of the threat ISIS poses not only to troops stationed at the remote air base; Pirro said she joins 73 percent of Americans (recent poll) who believe the POTUS is not tough enough in the so-called war on terror.
Pirro continued castigating Obama on numerous fronts including the recent situation in Yemen. Last week when the embassy there received credible threats, the call was made to abandon the facility. Judge Jeanine said it shows Obama’s weakness. Instead of fleeing, she said the embassy in Yemen should have been fortified. She also contrasted the president’s actions to his past rhetoric of victory by pointing out how the facility represented a success in his strategy on combating terrorism.
“You’re not a serious leader. You keep telling the enemy what we’re going to do and not do.”
