CONSERVATIVE COMMENTATOR CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER ON YEMEN: ‘HUGE GEOPOLITICAL GAIN FOR IRAN’

Fox News on January 22, 2013, reported that Commentator Charles Krauthammer said on “Special Report with Bret Baier” that the resignation of Yemen’s president and leadership is a “huge geopolitical gain for Iran.” Excerpts below:

“This is a country that Obama touted as a great success. It all hinged on the government, now destroyed and deposed.”

Krauthammer added that the Iranian influence now spreads throughout the region from Iraq to Syria and now Yemen, “That’s why this is a double attack on us,” he said. “It’s a loss of an ally against Al Qaeda and it’s a huge geopolitical gain for Iran extending its influence over Arab states.”

Comment: The United States has been fighting Al Qaeda in Yemen for a long time. The fall of Yemen’s president is a great setback in the war on international terrorism and further proof of Obama failure in foreign policy.
