Obama Heading to Saudi Arabia to Pay Respect to Saudi King

The famous picture of Obama bowing to Saudi King Abdullah

No one in the Obama administration chose to attend the Charlie Hebdo rally in France. And Obama also chose to skip the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz. Instead, the U.S. President is heading to Saudi Arabia to pay his respects to the late Saudi King Abdullah and to meet with the newly appointed monarch, King Salman.

Originally the president was going to be in India visiting the Taj Mahal.  According to CNN, “Vice President Joe Biden was originally set to have led a delegation to Saudi Arabia on Obama’s behalf…However, the schedule for the President’s departure from India has been adjusted to allow Obama to stop in Riyadh himself on his way home.”  

Will Donald Trump win the 2024 election?

Biden will now remain in Washington.

CNN reports although “no reason for the change of plan was given, it follows criticism this month of the Obama administration for its failure to send a senior representative to France for a huge unity march held in the wake of the Paris terror attacks.”  The administration apologized for their snafu and, of course, sent Secretary of State John Kerry to Paris the following week with…James Taylor…

Pamela Geller says, “This is a very dangerous time in the region. The Saudis were made weaker by Obama’s abandonment of our gulf allies, and were further weakened by the rise of the savage mullahocracy in Iran.”

For more information as to whom King Abdullah was, please read this article called ‘The legacy of King Abdullah: the good, the bad, and the downright ugly” by Albawaba News (a Middle Eastern news site).  It paints a very accurate picture of the man Obama is traveling to Saudi Arabia to pay his respects to.
