Obama’s Former Secretary of Defense says Not Abiding by Red Lines sends a Message of Weakness

President Obama’s former Secretary of Defense made an appearance on MSNBC Friday and seemed to offer some harsh criticism of President Obama while arguing that President Trump made the right decision to hit Syria and ISIS when provoked.

I always said that when a president puts his credibility on the line with a red line, as President Obama did saying we would not allow them to chemical weapons, I think it was the right step to take, but it was also important to stand by that red line and enforce it. I think when there was hesitancy to do go to Congress for permission, and not take action, I think it sent a message to Assad and Russia as well. I think it lines. When you say we will do something, you have to stand by your word. Otherwise, it sends a message of weakness to the world.

Constitution.com 🇺🇸

I am the supreme law of the United States. Originally comprising seven articles, I delineate the national frame of government. My first three articles entrench the doctrine of the separation of powers, whereby the federal government is divided into three branches: the legislative, consisting of the bicameral Congress; the executive, consisting of the President; and the judicial, consisting of the Supreme Court and other federal courts. Articles Four, Five and Six entrench concepts of federalism, describing the rights and responsibilities of state governments and of the states in relationship to the federal government. Article Seven establishes the procedure subsequently used by the thirteen States to ratify it. I am regarded as the oldest written and codified constitution in force of the world.
