President Barack Obama lied when he said his administration would retaliate if Syria used chemical weapons and claimed he "would promise something and do the opposite", setting the Middle East back 20 years, a former top Saudi official has claimed.
Bandar bin Sultan, who served as the head of Saudi intelligence and later as the Saudi ambassador to the United States, lashed out against Obama in a wide-ranging interview with the Independent Arabia, a newly launched publication in London.
He said that the late Saudi King Abdullah told Obama in their last phone call that I did not expect that [after] this long life, I would see [the day] when an American president lies to me, according to the Jerusalem Post.

Only 20 years?
Obama/Clinton/Kerry was an absolute disaster for the United States and the World.
I’m shocked, I tell you!
No, bin Sultan obviously doesn’t understand “nuance.”
Not surprising as the “ forked tongued” teleprompter reader also did this to our allies all in the name fo serving his real God...
Georgie S, quickly covered for him when he let it slip during an interview..
” my muslim faith”
Well, yeah. Finding something Obama lies about is not exactly like finding a four leaf clover. Thanks jazusamo.
video covers Georges cover up more than the actual quote...
Let them go to Texas and cry on the sleeves of their Bush family b!tches.
Well Prince Bandar, fifty per cent of Americans could have told you not to believe a single word obozo says. Welcome to the party, pal!
Obama lied? His entire life narrative is a lie...
*uck Saudi Arabia.
Slip of the tongue or momentary confusion? In a television interview today discussing his religion, Sen. Barack Obama stated, My Muslim faith.
Obama, speaking to ABCs George Stephanopoulos on This Week, was talking about what he described as smears that were claiming he was a Muslim when he maintains he is a practicing Christian.
Lets not play games, Obama stated. What I was suggesting youre absolutely right that John McCain has not talked about my Muslim faith. And youre absolutely right that that has not come.
Stephanopoulos immediately interrupted Obama, stating, Christian faith.
Support Free Republic, Folks!
So were supposed to be upset because Obama didnt launch a full on war against Assad? Maybe Saudi Arabia wanted us to do that, but what was the American interest in doing yet another regime change war in the Middle East? As Trump says, enough interventions in those sand countries - its already wasted $6 trillion of our dollars and thousands of our young people.
Im no Obama fan but Im glad Obama didnt launch the war that Saudis wanted
And yet gabby still won’t speak up. Oh, I guess that was mean.
“Georgie S, quickly covered for him when he let it slip during an interview..”
And this is why Hillary will never be President.
It was bad enough that Obama, in alliance with McCain, gave support to jihadist rebels in Syria. At least he didnt start an open war against Assad. If that makes Saudi Arabia mad, too bad
He just figured that out?
Are you upset that Obama didnt make good on his red line threat and invade Syria? Im not.
