Former Secretary of State John Kerry spoke on Wednesday revealing that the Obama administration indeed knew about Syrian President Bashar al-Assad had kept some of his chemical weapons despite an international agreement to remove the stockpile his country possessed by 2014.
This, of course, is contrary to Obama’s own words on the matter.
In 2013, the United States and Russia struck a deal to remove Syria’s entire arsenal of chemical weapons from the country by the middle of 2014. Kerry and other Obama administration officials publicly touted the deal as a major success.
“We struck a deal where we got 100 percent of the chemical weapons out,” Kerry said on NBC’s “Meet the Press” in 2014.
In 2015, however, the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) told the Obama administration that it had found traces of sarin and VX nerve agent at the Syrian government’s Scientific Studies and Research Center in the district of Barzeh, near Damascus.
A U.N. report later concluded that the Assad regime was responsible for a chemical attack on the Syrian town of Khan Sheikhoun in April 2017. According to the OPCW and other organizations, the regime has used chemical weapons in several other instances since 2014, including chlorine in a chemical-weapons attack on the city of Douma in April.
Kerry said Wednesday that he agreed with President Donald Trump’s military response to Assad’s suspected use of chemical weapons in Douma.
Stop the presses. Did a Democrat just agree with something President Trump did while in office? Is the world about to end or something? It seems like the world is about to end or something.
This just goes to show you how many egregious mistakes that the Obama administration made during his time in office. Well, then again, a lot of these “mistakes” were done on purpose, so yeah, there’s that.
At the end of the day, Trump has done a phenomenal job at undoing the damage to our foreign policy that Obama’s “leading from behind” caused, and thus, we should all be thankful for his leadership.
