Former president Obama’s spinelessness against foreign adversaries left the world a more dangerous place.
That’s what ex-Obama officials Barry Pavel, Michael McFaul and Gary Samore said while praising President Donald Trump‘s decisive actions in Syria and Afghanistan this week.
According to Fox News, “Ex-Obama officials say hesitation to use force in Syria, elsewhere, emboldened adversaries.”

“I think he left a more dangerous world,” Barry Pavel told Fox News. Pavel was a senior director for defense policy and strategy on the U.S. National Security Council staff from 2008 to 2010.
“Because they knew that the Obama administration would never use military force for any purpose, they felt free to conduct their coercive actions in the South China Seas, the Russians went into Iran and Syria, and North Korea accelerated their nuclear arms program.”, he continued.
Pavel stated America’s enemies knew that Obama “had the capability, but not the will” to retaliate against aggressive actions, so our enemies did whatever they felt like without fear of repercussion from the United States — the only superpower in the world.
However, Pavel, McFaul and Samore were quick to offer praise of President Donald Trump‘s decisive actions in Syria and Afghanistan recently.
As a result of Obama’s spinelessness and inaction, ISIS spread to more than 18 countries around the world, committing mass genocide against people groups. Instead of retaliating against Assad for violating international treaties banning the use of chemical weapons, Obama chose to lie via his talking mouthpiece Susan Rice, claiming the United States had destroyed Syria’s chemical-weapons arsenal. That was proven false when Assad reportedly attacked civilians with sarin nerve gas last week.
“In Syria, a major mistake was treating it like a humanitarian crisis, when it was a major national security crisis that has caused destabilization on our closest allies in Europe,” Pavel stated. “Syria has been a source of terrorist attacks in Europe and the United States, and future attacks. I worry about that very much.”
Gary Samore, who served as Obama’s White House coordinator for arms control and weapons of mass destruction, remains an Obama apologist but praised President Trump’s air strikes in Syria, applauding his actions.
“I applaud Trump,” Samore told Fox News. “Obama made a huge mistake by saying he was going to go to Congress for authorization. It turned out he did not have the votes. Trump was very smart to do it without congressional support.” Samore said.
