Daniel Pipes Explains the 'Obama Doctrine' in One Sentence


Actually, this interview is more than 18 minutes long, but that once sentence is easy to remember:

“Snarl at your friends, smile at your enemies.”

Dr. Pipes tells’s Ezra Levant (who he was pretty impressed with…) that “doctrine” is a slight exaggeration since much of what’s been happening around the world can be explained by sheer incompetence on the president’s part.

He adds, however, that a lot of these foreign policy “blunders” are intentional.

They’re the direct result of Obama’s anti-American ideology — and even his personal psychology.

This thought-provoking, in-depth interview covers a lot of ground: the Muslim Brotherhood, ISIS, Israel, Iran, Saudi Arabia and much more.
