Paul Wolfowitz: No One in Iraq Is Taking Kerry Seriously

Paul Wolfowitz: No One in Iraq Is Taking Kerry Seriously


Tuesday on FNC’s “Fox & Friends,” former Deputy Defense Secretary Paul Wolfowitz slammed feckless Secretary of State John Kerry. 

“When Secretary Kerry goes over there and lectures them about what to do with their government, an awful lot of people on both sides say, ‘We don’t take you seriously,’” he said. 

Moving to potential steps President Barack Obama could take to build back trust in the region Wolfowitz said, “But we’ve got to do some things to show seriousness and that doesn’t necessarily mean the use of military force.” 

“Here’s an example,” he continued. “The president announced that we are going to leave Afghanistan in two years no matter what the condition of Afghanistan is. It would make a big difference if he said, ‘I’ve seen what happened in Iraq. I’ve seen what’s happening in Syria. I’m very concerned about the growth of al Qaeda. I’m reconsidering this deadline in Afghanistan.'”
