He most certainly did.
(CNSNews.com) – Representative Jeff Landry (R-La.) said the Obama administration bears some of the blame for the current crises in Egypt and Libya because it pursued policies that helped both regimes rise to power, adding that President Barack Obama had “built that.”
“Remember, the regimes that are in place in those two countries came under his policies – he built that, okay,” Landry said at a press conference on Wednesday.
On Tuesday, the anniversary of 9/11, there were violent demonstrations at the U.S. embassies in Egypt and in Libya where, in the latter, U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three embassy personnel were killed.
Representative Landry argued that President Obama should show leadership and request that foreign aid to Egypt and Libya be canceled in the upcoming continuing resolution (CR), which will extend federal funding for the entire U.S. government for the next six months.
