Ralph Peters had some choice words for the president in reaction to his surreal 60 Minutes interview that aired Sunday.
In case you missed it, Obama told CBS’s Steve Kroft that Putin’s incursions into Syria are a sign of weakness – not a sign of leadership.
Obama boasted that real leadership is pushing for a climate change treaty and brokering a nuke deal with Iran (that has already been violated.)
“He’s chasing unicorns,” Peters said. “The president refuses to understand Putin.” He added that Obama also doesn’t understand the Russians, warfare, and the Islamic State. “He lives in this little bubble of unreality,” he declared.
Peters took issue with Fox News foreign policy analyst KT McFarlane’s contention that Obama was “walking away from the Middle East.”
“Obama is crawling away from the Middle East like a …crippled hamster,” he corrected.
An aside: Here’s some interesting dish from former intel officer John Schindler on Twitter:
Had a senior EU diplomat, old friend, ask me today, “How does your impeachment work? My government believes Obama is quite mentally unwell.”
