O’Reilly: There Were No Foreign Policy Questions Asked to Members of Party Responsible to the Mess We’re In

‘Once again, in a major presidential debate, President Obama’s foreign policy was largely ignored’

“Hi, I’m Bill O’Reilly. Thanks for watching us tonight. The situation growing worse overseas, that is the subject of this subject of this evening’s Talking Points Memo. As we established last night, very few questions about terrorism in the Middle East were asked in the CNN debate this week. That was a glaring error. Today faced with a deteriorating situation in Afghanistan, President Obama said this:”

OBAMA: “I’ve decided to maintain our current posture of 9,800 troops in Afghanistan through most of next year...I’m absolutely confident this is the right thing to do and I’m not disappointed, because my view has always been how do we achieve our goals while minimizing the strain and exposure of our men and women in uniform?”

“Well, it is clear U.S. goals in Afghanistan are not being met. Taliban’s attacking at will, ISIS is now causing trouble in that country. Al Qaeda continuing its terror activities. And it’s not only Afghanistan in trouble. Today we learned that 1,500 Iranian shock troops are in Syria. They join Russian ground troops and scores of Putin’s bombers, that are propping up the Assad regime by killing opponents, some of whom are supported by the CIA. So now, Israel has on its border Iranian and Russian troops in Syria. Is there any wonder that violence between Palestinians and Israelis has spiked? This is off the chart dangerous, yet once again in a major presidential debate Mr. Obama’s foreign policy was largely ignored. The reason is, the Democratic Party has largely supported the President overseas. That includes former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who actually designed some of the policies that are now failing. Talking Points is furious that many Americans have absolutely no clue, about the danger that is developing. Russia and Iran will soon essentially control the entire Middle East, and their proxies will spread terror all across the region. That will lead to more refugees fleeing into Europe, and some of them will eventually find their way to America. In addition, ISIS is expanding, as the president has failed dismally in confronting that group. Once again, we did not hear a word about that, during the debate. Want facts? Here they are: There was one question asked about Syria, one, during the entire two hours. There were no direct questions asked about ISIS. There were no questions at all, about the migrant crisis in Europe. And no direct questions about the Iranian nuke deal, which is panicking U.S. allies, in the Middle East. Simply hard to believe, but it’s true. CNN is a worldwide news organization that surely knows the intense situation in the Middle East and Afghanistan and the direct threat it poses to the USA. Yet no questions to members of the party that’s largely responsible for the mess. And that’s the memo.”
