In a 2013 fund-raising letter, Allen West wrote that "Obama's completely incoherent foreign policy is putting our strongest allies in grave danger. His extreme ambivalence is simply unacceptable."
But is it really incoherent? Obama's mentors have long taught him to despise America. In fact, these "mentors and allies were marked by hatred of the United States," and Obama was "marinated" in a "visceral hostility to the West" via the influence of Frank Marshall Davis, who had a long history of anti-American, anti-white beliefs. Other mentors include Rashid Khalidi and the late Edward Said, spokesmen for Palestinian terrorists. That Christians in the Middle East as well as Israel, the Jewish homeland, should be put at grave risk is an idea that has swirled in this president's mind for a very long time. Thomas Sowell maintains that "[w]hat many regard as a failure of Obama's foreign policy, especially in the Middle East, may well be one of his biggest successes."
