Hugh Hewitt: Who’s to Blame in Tensions With Iran?

The Trump administration deserves some credit for seeing Iran clearly.

President Obama did not. His efforts to lure Ayatollah Khomeini into changing the behavior of his rogue regime never had a chance because it began from the premise that appeasement works, but appeasement never does work.

Not with Iran. Not with Russia and the famous “reset” button. And not in the 1994 deal with North Korea.

The appeasement policies of Obama have been abandoned. Good!

Iran is dangerously close to provoking a conflict—and most U.S. media outlets are far behind the news curve.

President Trump has been ably served by National Security Advisor John Bolton—as well as Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. Both rightly believe that Iran was, is and will remain a rogue regime as long as the radical theocrats remain in power.

It’s not about Bolton or Pompeo.
