Team Obama's bizarre behavior helps Gitmo terrorists foil justice
Topic - James Jay Carafano
Sens. Marco Rubio and Rand Paul — in what could be a preview of a 2016 Republican presidential primary showdown — are staking out markedly different positions on U.S. intervention in the world, and particularly on American policy toward the Middle East
With the American public growing more pessimistic about Afghanistan, war proponents are renewing their case in the face of new estimates that say no more than 100 al Qaeda operatives remain in the country.
James Jay Carafano, a national security specialist at the conservative Heritage Foundation, said the Iran deal "accomplishes nothing" and is part of a troubling pattern with the Obama administration's approach to the Middle East.
"This administration was desperate for something to make it look like they're accomplishing things," Mr. Carafano said. "They've been consistent on that from Iraq to Afghanistan to Libya and Syria. It doesn't actually matter if you make things better, it just matters that you create the appearance that you're making things better temporarily."
