He spoke about Netanyahu in an interview that he gave to CNN’s Fareed Zakaria on Thursday about the Iran deal, which aired in full on Sunday.
In the clip below, Zakaria asked Obama a question about Netanyahu’s stiff opposition to the deal to curb Iran’s nuclear program that was worked out between Tehran and the six world powers; the US, Russia, China, France, Great Britain and Germany.
Congress is expected to vote on the deal by September 17. Netanyahu has mounted a public campaign against the deal which he believes is a historic mistake because it legitimizes Iran’s nuclear program and leaves it with the ability to produce atomic weapons.
“Prime Minister Netanyahu has injected himself forcefully into this debate on American foreign policy in Washington. Can you recall a time when a foreign head of government has done that. Is it appropriate for a foreign head of government to inject himself into an American debate,” Zakaria asked.
Obama responded, “I do not recall a similar example.”
He added: “Obviously the relationship between the US and Israel is deep. It is profound. It is reflected in my policies. But as I said in the speech yesterday on the substance, the prime minister is wrong on this.
Full Interview Part 1
President Obama sits down with left-wing Democrat, serial-plagiarist, and Hezbollah-apologist Fareed Zakaria to push his agenda of appeasement towards Iran. Zakaria acts as Obama's spokesperson, asking nonsensical questions with dishonest premises and ignoring relevant facts that challenge The Narrative.
For instance, Zakaria implies that Benjamin Netanyahu has violated some sort of propriety by "injecting himself" into the American debate on foreign policy - all the while ignoring Obama's deployment of his electioneering agents and actually spending American taxpayer dollars in Israel's most recent elections to unseat Bibi as PM.
Zakaria and Obama notably never use the word "terrorism", preferring instead benign terms like "regional activity". This dishonest language is deployed to sell surrender.
Zakaria acts as Obama's spokesperson, asking him questions that feel pre-approved.
Naturally, Zakaria avoids any serious challenge to The Narrative. For instance, when Obama asserts that total American spending on military and defense eclipses that of its enemies, Zakaria neglects to mentions that:
1. We live in an era where America and broder Western civilization is unwilling to actually project sufficient military force to secure decisive victories, and...
2. Contemporary terrorism is very inexpensive - consider the cost of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Mayhem as well as political/economic ruin is deliverable with low-cost terrorist operations.
President Obama sits down with loyal sycophant Fareed Zakaria to sell his proposed surrender to Iran to CNN's low-information audience.
Obama dismisses criticisms of his appeasement agenda as either dishonest or incompetent.
Naturally, Zakaria avoids asking any questions about thinly-veiled anti-Semitism being pushed via a whisper campaign from his political operatives. The usual memes of dual-loyalty, "Israel Firsters", and malevolent influence from wealthy Jews have been deployed.
