Nikki Haley blames Biden's foreign policy failures for Hamas attack on Israel

October 17, 2023

President Joe Biden and the White House desperately want the world to believe that the United States is doing everything it can to aid Israel and help bring the conflict in the Middle East to a close.

But the president has been criticized by many for his foreign policy decisions that many believe ultimately led to the horrific Hamas-led terrorist attack on Israel last week.

According to Breitbart, former Gov. Nikki Haley (R-SC), a Republican presidential candidate, held nothing back during a recent CNN "State of the Union" interview during which she blamed Biden's foreign policy disasters for empowering Iran to encourage Hamas terrorists into committing the atrocities against the Israeli people.

"I mean, what Hamas did was beyond thuggish, brutal, and sick. What the Iranian regime is doing to help them is terrible, but let’s look back at what did Biden do? Biden turned around and fell all over himself to get back into the Iran deal. Obama did it before that. You gave all of this money, and you empowered Iran to go and strengthen Hamas, strengthen Hezbollah, strengthen the Houthis to spread their terrorist activity.

Haley added, "Biden has loosened the sanctions. Now we’ve got the fact that he gave $6 billion in hostage money."

The $6 billion that Biden authorized for "humanitarian" purposes has been a point of criticism as well, as many believe that due to the fungible nature of money, the $6 billion in padding might have given the state sponsor of terror the financial security it needed to possibly fund the Hamas attacks.

Haley went on to point out that a dangerous new precedent has been set by Biden and his administration regarding hostage money on a massive scale.

"Now he’s frozen it, but we have all of these American hostages. Guess what they’re going to want. If you gave them $6 billion for five people and released hostages, guess what? They’re going to be asking for all of these others that we have. So we created this scenario where you’ve given the Iranian regime too much power and too much pull to be able to do this," Haley said.

The former governor added, "We’ve got to be strong, we’ve got to have Israel’s back and remember, as awful as these images are, and we have the back of Israel, because they’ve been hit terribly, we have to have the back of them when they hit back as well."

According to the New York Post, this was the second time Haley blamed the Biden administration for the attacks, as she originally said it after the attack occurred, during an interview on NBC's "Meet the Press."

"I actually think it was irresponsible for Secretary Blinken to say that the $6 billion doesn’t weigh in here," she said at the time.

The Biden administration spent several days pushing back on the idea that the $6 billion had any influence on the attacks, not that they would even remotely consider admitting that it did if that were the case.

Israel has vowed to retaliate against Hamas with a large-scale ground invasion, but has continued to delay it while political pressure builds to ensure that as many Palestinians as possible are able to evacuate the Gaza Strip.
