One of the biggest criticisms the Democrats had of former President George W. Bush was that he alienated the rest of the world by acting unilaterally on world issues. Barack Obama has gone on an apology tour around the world begging the world for forgiveness for America’s arrogance.
So what’s the deal with Barack Obama going behind Britain’s back and negotiating unilaterally with Bermuda, a UK colony, to settle four Uighurs there? The British government had the right to know and the US government had the obligation to tell them what they were doing. The arrogance and disrespect toward Britain and its sovereignty is mind blowing.
Imagine if the tables were turned and the British placed terrorists on the US Virgin Islands without the US government’s knowledge. Obama would be furious and would take Brown to task for acting so disrespectfully.
The Obama administration was quick with an excuse:
Now a senior US official has told the BBC it was a deliberate decision not to consult London on the resettlement, after other countries came under pressure from China not to accept the Uighurs.
In a highly unusual move, a senior US official said Washington opted to keep details of the deal from London until the last minute to enable Britain to deny all knowledge of the deal and thus avoid China’s anger, says the BBC’s Washington correspondent Kim Ghattas.
Isn’t that special.
