Pompeo in Cairo: ‘The Age of Self-Inflicted American Shame Is Over’



By: Edwin Mora
10 Jan 2019

U.S. Secretary of State Michael Pompeo, during a speech on the Middle East delivered in Cairo Thursday, praised the United States as a “force for good” in the region and blasted previous President Barack Obama’s administration for underestimating Islamic extremism and the Iranian menace.

At the heart of the speech was a scathing criticism of President Obama, particularly a 2009 speech by the former president in Cairo that attempted to bridge the gaps between the United States and the Muslim and reverse decades-old animosity towards Iran, long considered the world’s leading state-sponsor of terrorism by the U.S.

Referring to what he described as Obama’s foreign policy missteps, Pompeo declared:

The age of self-inflicted American shame is over, and so are the policies that produced so much needless suffering. Now comes the real new beginning. In just 24 months, actually less than two years, the United States under President [Donald] Trump has reasserted its traditional role as a force for good in this region. We’ve learned from our mistakes. We’ve rediscovered our voice. We’ve rebuilt our relationships. We’ve rejected false overtures from our enemies.

The Trump administration is confronting “the ugly reality of radical Islam,” rather than cringing away from it like its predecessor, Pompeo argued.

He commended Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi’s relationship with the U.S.

Alluding to Obama’s 2009 speech in Cairo, Pompeo declared:

Remember: It was here, here in this city, that another American stood before you. He told you that radical Islamist terrorism does not stem from an ideology. He told you that 9/11 led my country to abandon its ideals, particularly in the Middle East. He told you that the United States and the Muslim world needed, quote, ‘a new beginning,’ end of quote.

The results of these misjudgments have been dire.We grossly underestimated the tenacity and viciousness of radical Islamism, a debauched strain of the faith that seeks to upend every other form of worship or governance.

America’sreluctance to wield our influencein response to certain Middle East threats allowed Iran’s influence to grow, he said.

To secure approval of the controversial Iran nuclear deal that U.S. President Donald Trump canceled last year, the Obama administration “derailed” a DEA operation targeting Hezbollah’s multi-million-dollar drug trafficking activities in Latin America, Politico reported in December 2017.

He means that he wants to be more interventionist in the Middle East than he believes Obama was.
