General and former Defense Intelligence Agency Director under President Obama, Michael Flynn said “I see a lot of confusion” in the US’ strategy towards Iran and that “there’s something wrong” with negotiating with Iran while blocking Iran’s warships in an interview broadcast on Wednesday’s “Fox & Friends” on the Fox News Channel.
