Former Obama advisers tell Trump to be quiet about the Iranian protests

Former Obama advisers tell Trump to be quiet about the Iranian protests, Jihad Watch

Several key advisers to former President Barack Obama have poured scorn on President Donald Trump’s support for the protests sweeping Iran in recent days.

The former Obama administration, over a year later, still has not accepted that it is no longer leading America, and that the American people exercised their democratic right to vote in Trump as their leader. The public lost confidence in a so-called leader who betrayed American principles of democracy. Among Obama’s misdeeds, he:

  • Signed the Iranian deal, which released over 100 billion dollars into Iran’s coffers, enabling it to further fund its jihadi proxies such as Hizballah, Hamas, Islamic Jihad, etc.
  • Airlifted 400 million dollars to Iran, which happened to coincide with the January 2016 release of four Americans detained in Tehran, such that critics called it a ransom payout.
  • Paid Iran some $33.6 billion in secret cash and gold payments, in monthly installments of $700,000,000, between 2014 and 2016, according to testimony provided before Congress by an expert on the Iran nuclear agreement.
  • Hid intel on Iranian jihadis in Syria in order to push the Iranian nuclear deal.
  • Tried to convince Argentina to give Iran nuclear fuel, according to former Argentine President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner.
  • Ordered the CIA not to support the 2009 Green Movement in Iran, because he was too committed to “diplomatic” outreach to Ayatollah Khamenei.

In fact:

In 2009, when the “Green Revolution” threatened the Iranian regime, Obama and his administration refrained from supporting the protests. Obama said that “we respect Iranian sovereignty and want to avoid the United States being the issue inside of Iran.

Respect for this brutal regime that oppresses its people, aims to obliterate Israel and funds jihadi terror globally?

Should Donald Trump’s support help bring the Iranian people closer to freedom with any measure of success — weakening the Iranian regime — then it would further show up the incompetence within the Obama administration as leader of the free world. Otherwise, the new Iranian uprising could expose even more about the unscrupulous partnership between the Obama administration and Iran, none of which is flattering or useful to Obama and his cronies.

“Former Obama Advisers Tell Trump to ‘Be Quiet’ on Iran Protests”, by Joel Pollak, Breitbart, January 1, 2017:

Several key advisers to former President Barack Obama have poured scorn on President Donald Trump’s support for the protests sweeping Iran in recent days.

In 2009, when the “Green Revolution” threatened the Iranian regime, Obama and his administration refrained from supporting the protests. Obama said that “we respect Iranian sovereignty and want to avoid the United States being the issue inside of Iran.”

That weak response, and the administration’s general lack of support for the demonstrators, allowed the regime to consolidate power.

Obama was more concerned with preserving the possibility of an eventual deal on Iran’s nuclear program than he was in removing the Iranian regime as a strategic threat or in standing up for human rights. Critics charge that Obama missed a golden opportunity.

President Trump has taken the opposite approach, vigorously supporting the protests and criticizing the regime.

But the Obama brain trust rejects Trump’s approach, and apparently believes the approach Obama took in 2009 remains the best one.

Former National Security Advisor Susan Rice tweeted a New York Times op-ed by former Obama aide Philip Gordon, “How Can Trump Help Iran’s Protesters? Be Quiet.” The author argues that supporting the protests, and taking steps to end the Iran nuclear deal, will only help the regime to delegitimize its internal opponents.

Rice offered no other statement of solidarity for the demonstrators.

Rob Malley, who had once been dropped from the Obama campaign for meeting with the Hamas terrorist group but found his way back into the administration in negotiations with Iran, also praised Gordon’s op-ed.

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who was in office during the Green Revolution, was more supportive of the protesters, but said merely that she “hope[d]” the Iranian regime would listen to them…..
