Former U.S. Navy Seal Carl Higbie spoke with Greta Van Susteren on FOX News saying that more than 90 percent of military troops do not support Obama or his foreign policies.
He continued by saying that the president’s most recent showing with the troops at CentCom was nothing more than a “photo-op.”
“This is indicative of a global failure of his foreign policy. He has touted that he is behind the troops before, and he stands in front of these guys [military], gets a photo-op and everything like that while saying, ‘I’m going to send 3,000 of you to combat Ebola, but I’m not going to send any to combat an actual enemy that’s really threatening America.”
Higbie continued in his critique of Obama, saying that his plan to train the Iraqi people will be an ineffective one because the U.S., as well as he personally, has trained Iraqis before, and “they still were not an effective fighting force.”
The Navy Seal said that Obama should take the handcuffs off our military so they can fight against the real enemies, noting that the U.S. has one of the most superior military forces the world has ever known, and that we should be taking the fight to them.
“It’s going to take a massive message. I would say to these people [ISIS], especially to the president, ‘You chop two American’s heads off, I’m coming to get you,'” Higbie said. “It’s going to take a surge of troops, unfortunately, and really send the message home. They need to be in fear of us.”
