Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Thursday launched an astonishing rebuke of former President Barack Obamas foreign policy at the site of Obamas famous speech to the Muslim world -- declaring that the age of self-inflicted American shame is over.
Pompeo delivered his remarks in Cairo, where Obama famously spoke in 2009 and promised a new beginning with Muslim and Arab countries. He was criticized by conservatives for placing too much blame on the U.S. for strife in the region.
Pompeo, while not mentioning Obama by name, said that it was here, in this city, another American stood before you and told you that radical Islamist terrorism does not stem from ideology.
He told you that 9/11 led my country to abandon its ideals, particularly in the Middle East, he said at the American University in Cairo. He told you that the United States and the Muslim world needed a new beginning. The results of these misjudgments have been dire.
Pompeo said that under Obama, the U.S. abandoned its allies and was timid about asserting itself, that the U.S. grossly underestimated the tenacity and viciousness of radical Islamism, and kept silent as Iranians tried to rise up against the regime in Tehran.
He also criticized Obama-era policy for wishful thinking [that] led us to look the other way as Hezbollah built up its weaponry in Lebanon, and for doing nothing as Syrian President Bashar Assad gassed his own people

Pompeo, at site of Obama's address to Muslim world, rebukes his legacy: 'Age of self-inflicted American shame is over'
Ooooooh, me likey.
Very good indeed! People are criticizing Trump for pulling our troops, but the problem is that our policy had them supporting our enemies. Obama was incredibly pro-Islamic and anti-American, and his “policies” probably resulted not only in the deaths of American soldiers, but in the destabilization of several ME countries.
I want to see that bass terds every move dismantled , piece by piece. That arrogant sob and his stupid worshippers.
Best guy Trump has hired. We need more like him.
The Kenyan is NOT American.
Obama is rocked.
Yes, yes YES!
The stain of Obamaisum, is fading away.
All,that was done by his presidency is undone.
Those that feared for the Republic are now free.
Now does the days of Trump. And the Lord has Blessed them
Pics or it didnt happen.
MSM will ignore.
Excellent, plenty of damage to undo after Obama’s treacherous Arab Spring movement.
“Ooooooh, me likey.”
Me too. Let’s see if it’s reported by the mainstream news.
Of course, Turkey is being a pr*** about everything.
Carter, the Clintons, the obamas have all criticized this
administration, now they are getting it back.
Barak, GET SOME!
Although Obama visited Israel while he was running for President, he never visited Israel as President until 2016, which is very telling. That 2009 trip was the one where he found that big-eared, doofus hieroglyph that looked like him.
Obama’s polices succeeded in the Middle East because they were meant to. That’s why that Marxist was put in office.
Wish we had a million more like him
