Bachmann blames Obama for weakness on Iran
The Justice Department announced Tuesday that two men had been charged
with conspiring to kill the Saudi ambassador to Washington in a bomb
plot sponsored by elements of the Iranian government.
“When you have a nation — that is a hostile nation — seeing the United
States from a lens point of weakness then that can lead to actions
that are absolutely heinous like were seeing today,” said Bachmann, a Republican congresswoman from Minnesota.
Bachmann wouldn’t say whether military action should be
taken against Iran, but maintained that policies should have been
carried out earlier to prevent the alleged attempted assassination.
“This is a very serious issue that needs to be addressed seriously and
obviously historically this needed to be addressed by the White House
earlier on so that signals were sent to Iran that you would never
consider attempting something like this on U.S. soil. Obviously they
felt like they could be successful,” said Bachmann.
“Clearly I think the president took his eye off the most important
thing and that’s a nuclear Iran,” she added.
