Jack Keane: I Was Embarrassed for the U.S. for the First Time in My Life in 2009 with the Way Obama Acted on Iran
KEANE: "First of all, an honor to be here with sergeant Bartlett and the fact that he still in the fight and God bless him, God bless him for that. He’s made a hell of a sacrifice, that’s for sure. The way President Obama acted then, I was embarrassed for the United States. I think the first time ever in my life. We did not stand up and have moral clarity over the fact that there was a serious protest going on for the first time of any consequence against the Iranian regime. This one I think — it cuts a little deeper because that one was about an election with the people believe was stolen. At this, while not as massive in Tehran, it cuts across the entire social economic fabric of the country because unemployment is at 12%, inflation is high. That touches everybody’s pocketbook. There have been so many false promises about what they were going to do when they got sanction relief. They got the money, a ton of money, over $100 billion and most of that as documented by our intelligence agencies has gone to fund the war in Syria, in other words the Hezbollah, the war in Iraq, in other words the shield militia, and the war in Yemen, all of which the Iranians are backing. That is where their money is primarily going. The well-being of the people are paying a heck of a price for it and they are in the streets absolutely getting the attention. The other thing I’ve noticed that’s different is they are really attacking the president of the country for failing them and also attacking the supreme leader. I think the degree that that’s going on is a bit unusual."
