WASHINGTON D.C. (Worthy News)-- Retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, the former director of the Defense Intelligence Agency under President Obama, says there is "incredible policy confusion" in Washington regarding the Middle East, where the United States sides with Saudi Arabia and Sunni Muslims in some cases, but then sides with Iran and the Shi'ites in other cases -- all while trying to strike a nuclear deal with Iran, a country he said can't be trusted, CNS News reported.
"So, let me just start by saying as an intelligence officer, intelligence has to be part of the calculus of every strategic level of decision. And, right now, I don't -- my sense of where the policy is at is sort of, and I hate to say it like this, but it's almost a policy of willful ignorance," Flynn told "Fox News Sunday."
"And to me, we have some major problems that we are dealing with, and here we are talking to Iran about a nuclear deal with this almost complete breakdown of order in the Middle East." --[wp_colorbox_media url="http://cnsnews.com/news/article/susan-jones/ex-intelligence-chief-us-displaying-willful-ignorance-regarding-middle-east" type="iframe" hyperlink="Source"]
