NBC Chief Foreign Affairs Correspondent and MSNBC anchor Andrea Mitchell said the U.S. may have reached a “diplomatic dead-end to the reset button the Obama administration pushed in 2009” in a report on NBC’s Meet the Press on Sunday.
“The launch button on a Russian-made missile that blew the Malaysian airline out of the sky could signal a diplomatic dead-end to the reset button the Obama administration pushed in 2009,” she stated as she openly questioned President Obama’s leverage against Russia.
Mitchell also asserted, “this isn’t a new Cold War, but it is a new low in modern-day relations between the U.S. and Russia. So far, no amount of pressure, including a call from Secretary Kerry to the Russian Foreign Minister only yesterday, seems to change behavior, even as body parts were being removed and valuable evidence hauled away from that crash site.” Host David Gregory added that right now “might be the lowest moment… in U.S.-Russia relations relations since the Cold War.”
