Democratic Rep. Ro Khanna: 'We Didn't Have Protests Against Our Embassies' Under Obama

In an interview with Fox News this week, Democratic California Rep. Ro Khanna slammed President Donald Trump’s foreign policy and handling of escalating Iranian hostility, saying that “we didn’t have protests against our embassies” when Barack Obama was president.

Khanna made the outlandish claim that “Americans were safe” in our embassies overseas during Obama after host Sandra Smith asked, “Do you think there were any missed opportunities in the past that would have prevented Iran from getting to the point that it did?” 

“I do not,” Khanna responded. “Because this was not just Barack Obama. The reporting I’ve seen said president George W. Bush and vice president Dick Cheney also passed on the chance to take out Soleimani. And the reason they all passed as they didn’t want to escalate a war with Iran.”

“I believe the President Obama had a strategy of the JCPOA that would prevent Iran from becoming nuclear,” Khanna said. “There weren’t these incidents during the Obama Administration. We didn’t have protests against our embassies, the killing of American contractors. Americans were safe at that time.”

Nope. No protests. Not a single one. 

Well, except that pesky incident in Benghazi in 2012 that left four Americans dead, including Ambassador Chris Stephens, U.S. Foreign Service officer Sean Smith, and Navy SEALs-turned-CIA security officers Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods.

But other than that, not a peep.
