President Obama’s trip to Ireland didn’t sit well with Clare Daly, a member of the Irish Parliament who lashed out at Obama and members of the Ireland’s Parliament for supporting Obama on Syria and his relations with Ireland on Friday.
During his stay in Ireland, Obama spoke to a group of Irish school children in Northern Ireland about peace all the while supporting and sending arms to Syria in which Daly called his statements hypocritical and that Obama is nothing more than a war criminal.
In Obama’s speech to Irish school children, he said, “Those who choose a path of peace, I promise you, the United States of America will support you, every step of the way, we will always be a wind at your back.”
In speaking to parliament, she repeated what Obama stated and said, “Now I asked you, is this person going after the “Hypocrite of the Century” award? Because we have to call things by their right names… and the reality is, that from any serious examination, this man is a war criminal.”
“He has just announced his decision to supply arms to the Syrian opposition, including the Jihadist’s, fueling the destabilization of that region… continuing to undermine secularism and not back conditions set for women.”
Daly also went on to criticize the Irish government’s stance with the Obama administration and the country’s media for slobbering over President Obama and his family on their recent visit after the G8 summit.
After her parliament statements, Daly explained her position in more detail on the Irish Examiner.
Daly said, “The suggestion that the fanfare was good for tourism and that certain truths about the president’s policies must be overlooked is ludicrous. In fact, this approach is an insult to millions of Americans and others around the globe who have been bitterly disappointed with Obama’s failure to deliver for ordinary working people at home and abroad.”
