President Joe Biden’s Special Envoy to Iran, Robert Malley, said that the terrorist groups Hamas and Hezbollah are simply misunderstood by the West. Malley, whose anti-Israel positions have been documented as well as his desire to secure a nuclear deal (JCPOA) with arch-terrorist state Iran has drawn intense criticism from Arkansas Sen. Tom Cotton.
According to The Daily Wire:
“It’s deeply troubling that President Biden would consider appointing Rob Malley to direct Iran policy,” he stated. “Malley has a long track record of sympathy for the Iranian regime & animus towards Israel. The ayatollahs wouldn’t believe their luck if he is selected.”
In January, three U.S. officials left the team negotiating with Iran because Malley refused to take a harder negotiating position regarding sanctions.
As another indication of his soft policy toward world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism, Malley told a Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing on Wednesday, “The simple fact is this: as a means of constraining Iran’s nuclear program, the JCPOA was working. Leaving it has not.”
Regarding the terrorist groups Hamas and Hezbollah, Malley has stated, “Hezbollah and Hamas, there’s so much misinformation about them. I speak to them and my colleagues speak to them. Now, we may disagree with them but they have their own rationality; that’s the one thing to understand.”
“These are not — none of them are crazies,” he continued. “They may do things that we may consider to belong to a different realm of rationality but within their own system, it’s often very logical.”
It’s clear that the Biden administration’s foreign policy decisions are rotten to the very core but this might take the cake.
