President Obama refuses to speak out against horrendous human rights abuses committed by Saudi Arabia.
According to Politico:
“Saudi Arabia, a majority Sunni Muslim country, has long waged a regional proxy war with Shiite-majority Iran. That conflict flared after the Jan. 2 Saudi execution of Nimr al-Nimr, a Shia cleric whom Riyadh accused of fomenting subversion and terrorism.
While Obama occasionally urges the Saudis to liberalize their repressive political and legal system, he is careful about criticizing the kingdom’s dismal human rights record.
Neither the White House nor the State Department has specifically condemned the execution of Nimr and his 46 fellow alleged terrorists. White House press secretary Josh Earnest said little more than that the U.S. has “raised significant concerns about the human rights environment in Saudi Arabia.””
This shouldn’t be a surprise coming from a President who bowed to the former Saudi king as if Obama’s office meant NOTHING…
