  • Obama Defends Counterterrorism Record, Offers Guidance for Trump

    Voice of America - 12/07/2016

    Terrorism expert Max Abrahms of Northeastern University disagrees, saying the “original sin” on Iraq was former President George W. Bush’s decision to depose former Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein. He also faults Obama for “regime change” in Libya. But Abrahms said Obama’s overall record in the fight against terror is “respectable.”

    “I think Obama, to his credit, improved at counter-terrorism over time. His initial response to the Islamic State was too tepid. It was too slow. It wasn’t intense enough.”
