Marine Lt. Col. Oliver North brought a lifetime of national security experience to the table Monday when he went on Fox News to excoriate the Obama administration’s foreign policy — and warned Americans the situation could get a lot worse.
“The threat of what we are going to face for a long time to come is about to be amplified if this administration continues its current policy,” North told Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren on Monday’s “On the Record.”
“How do you spell genocide? O-B-A-M-A.”
North explained that the most important role of the United States government should be to protect its citizens and the homeland. North blasted the Obama administration for its failure to so on all fronts and added there’s no mechanism to thoroughly vet the 10,000 refugees the Obama administration has agreed to take in.
“And it’s not just Syria and Iraq,” North said. “You have refugees from Afghanistan, Libya, Lebanon, Somalia, Ethiopia, Kenya, Nigeria, Mali. Fourteen million human beings have been displaced or killed, and they are out of their homes and they have no place to live.
“So, 10,000 is a drop in the bucket.”
The agreement to take in refugees, North said, could be a move “to assuage the conscience of the Obama administration” over its decision to pull troops out of Iraq too early, leaving millions of people vulnerable to terrorist activity.
“More than a quarter of a million people have perished as a consequence of the genocide that’s being perpetrated thanks to the Obama administration,” North said.
“This is the direct consequence of a failure of American leadership, and bringing them here to this country without vetting them is a very dangerous thing.”
