Former Obama Official Makes STUNNING Admission About Trump Vs. Obama

According to Politico, which is not exactly the most Pro-Trump website in the media and which fawned over Barack Obama for years, a former Obama official made a startling confession, admitting after Trump’s air strike on a Syrian air base that Obama “would never have gotten this done in 48 hours … It’s a complete indictment of Obama.

Politico quoted Anne-Marie Slaughter, Obama’s first-term chief of policy planning at the State Department, stating, I feel like finally we have done the right thing. The years of hypocrisy just hurt us all. It undermined the U.S., it undermined the world order.”

Allahpundit at HotAir has his own guess as to why some Obama former officials are deserting their guy: “Maybe … there’s a troubled conscience at work? Not just for letting Assad act with impunity for years, but for the administration lying outright to Americans to make them believe he was more compliant on ridding himself of chemical weapons than he really was.”

Allahpundit points to this from the New York Times:

"Putting the best face on it, former Obama advisers said it was better to have removed 1,300 tons of chemical weapons from Syria even if Mr. Assad cheated and kept some, or later developed more. “Imagine what Syria would look like without that deal,” said Antony J. Blinken, a former deputy secretary of state. “It would be awash in chemical weapons, which would fall into the hands of ISIS, Al Nusra or other groups.” Still, the administration knew all along that it had probably not gotten all of the chemical weapons, and tried to get Russia to help press Syria, without success. “We always knew we had not gotten everything, that the Syrians had not been fully forthcoming in their declaration,” Mr. Blinken said."
