Posted on 12/15/2013 2:21:47 PM PST by Ben Mugged
An influential Saudi prince blasted the Obama administration on Sunday for indecision and a loss of credibility with allies in the Middle East, saying that American efforts to secure a peace deal between Israelis and Palestinians would founder without a clear commitment from President Obama.
Weve seen several red lines put forward by the president, which went along and became pinkish as time grew, and eventually ended up completely white, said Prince Turki al-Faisal, the former intelligence chief of Saudi Arabia. When that kind of assurance comes from a leader of a country like the United States, we expect him to stand by it. He added, There is an issue of confidence.
Mr. Obama has his problems, the prince said, but when a country has strong allies, you should be able to give them the assurance that what you say is going to be what you do. The prince no longer has any official position but has lately been providing the public expression of internal Saudi views with clear approval from the Saudi government.

Saudi Arabia should Stop Jihad Now.
When Khalid al-Mansour and Prince Alwaleed picked out Obama years ago, did they really expect the lazy youth to acquire discipline by making sure he never had to work for anything?
Making Valerie Jarrett puppet master only goes so far.
Saudi should stop funding training schools and camps all around the world for terrorists.
But the problem they have with Obama is that the Iranian Islamonazis are even more hateful and aggressive than Saud...
so O has switched his support to Iran
(Iran wants to take over the oil fiends that are in eastern Saudi, plus those down the block in the smaller gulf states, all closeby Iran...all oil fiends Iran could grab once its finishes deploying its nukes...Iran has already tried sending terrorist agents into the main oil pumping part of Saudi..which happens to lie near Iran... and which happens to have a large pro-Shiite/pro-Iranian element living in it. The Saudi dictators managed to catch and stop that subversion, so now Iran will make a more overt move when it finishes its nuke missiles, or whenever)
Once Iran grabs (or even eliminates) those oil fiends, it will control the majority of exportable oil in the entire world.
Wax museum figure look alike Valerie Jarrett will not be pleased to hear this.
Obama indecisive? Who would o’ thunk? The truth is that America’s and Obama’s allies are not one in the same. He’s shown that he’s no friend of Israel, but what’s he really up to if anything? There’s no way to tell yet.
The Saudis have problems with Obama? Welcome to our world.
There will be no peace between Palestinians and Israel as long as one Palestinian is left alive.
One day Israel will have to take care of that.
Hello Mr. Prince. Now you know what we know in the states. Welcome to da club of The Disappointed Observers!
As bizzarro as ValJ looks, somebody posted a pic of her reasonably attractive daughter. Maybe the daughter is adopted, LOL.
He isn’t indecisive, he has consistently come down on the side of the terrorist.
Not true. There was zero indecision. 0bama decided to lead from behind before his first bow.
Seems to me that Obama wants Israel to fail but does not want the blame. He supports the enemies of Israel while soliciting political donations from Jews in the United States. He also solicits donations from Saudi and will doubtless ask them to fund his library in Hawaii to be named Fantasy Island.
Just because he bows to you doesn’t mean he won’t throw you under the bus.
0bama’s narcissism is quite big enough to make him believe that he can heal the Sunni-Shia schizm in Islam. I am sure that he believes that he is the only one who can.
VJ has a lot of indirect connections with Saudis/Sunnis, but I’ve never heard of anyone connecting the nominally Christian Jarrett with any Shia bigwigs.
I had never seen Carney so flustered as when he was trying to handle the questions during that four day period; this is when he had his gaggle of favorites secretly meet with him before he went before the whole press corps to try to help him figure out what to say.
The upshot was that Putin took over as leader in working with Syria. The KGB guy now is now charge of our Mid East foreign policy.
0bama said he would have more flexibility after the election and his style is to lead from behind. He thinks he is manipulating Putin and the situation.
Indecision for Obama IS a decision.
That’s his version of voting “present”.
Scary stuff. They’re all rotten to the core.
Seriously, folks, you simply CANNOT make this stuff up. Even the Saudis have figured out that Barry is an empty suit and his puppet master is the Iranian Valerie Jarrett. Duh.
