(WASHINGTON EXAMINER) A retired four-star admiral who commanded the U.S. Pacific Fleet during several Middle East flare ups is charging that President Obama’s strategy in the area is “anti-American” and instead “pro-Islamic.”
Retired Adm. James “Ace” Lyons, also a former deputy chief of naval operations, said that the administration’s approach to the multiple confrontations with Muslim-based enemies follows a string of White House failures to strike Islamic terrorists stretching back to the Carter era’s failure to strike at Iran's leadership after the 1979 hostage taking.
"We’ve had many opportunities to changed the course of history. It hasn’t mattered whether it’s a Democratic or Republican administration, we’ve failed every one of them," says Lyons, who headed PacFleet from 1985 to 1987.
