Trump's 2011 Criticism of Obama in 2011 Didn't Age Well
In 2011, Trump believed Obama would start a war with Iran to help win an election. Leaders in Israel were prepared to kill Soleimani back in 2015 but just as Israel was "on the verge" of killing Soleimani, the Obama administration alerted Iranian officials about Israel's plans and their close tracking of the military leader.
According to a source who spoke to the Kuwaiti newspaper Al-Jarida, "there is an American-Israeli agreement" that Soleimani is a "threat to the two countries' interests in the region."
Tyler O'Neil at PJ Media noted an important tidbit about the revelation: "Yet the news that the Obama's administration prevented Israel from assassinating the Quds Force leader seems particularly significant, since the Obama administration also kept a list of approximately 500 American soldiers who were murdered by Iranian IEDs. Since the Quds Force spearheads Iran's operations outside the Islamic Republic, Soleimani would arguably be responsible for all of those deaths."
President Trump's response to the attacks on the U.S. embassy in Baghdad is a stark contrast to President Obama's lack of response when a similar situation took place in Benghazi back in 2012.
