“Utterly Irresponsible and Weak”: Biden Under Fire As Americans Held Hostage

Published

on

Clear Facts:

  • President Biden confirmed American hostages are being held by Hamas following a severe attack in Israel.
  • Conservative voices criticize Biden for neglecting to address Iran’s involvement in the recent attack.
  • Reports suggest Iran approved Hamas’ attack plan, with Iranian Supreme Leader Khamenei showing support for the assailants.

President Joe Biden has confirmed that American citizens are among those held hostage by Hamas, following the militant group’s violent attack which resulted in the deaths of over a thousand individuals in Israel.

“We now know that American citizens are among those being held by Hamas,” stated Biden.

He further added, “I’ve directed my team to share intelligence and deploy additional experts from across the United States government to consult with and advise Israeli counterparts on hostage recovery efforts. Because as president, I have no higher priority than the safety of Americans being held hostage around the world.”

During the course of his remarks, the President declared the assaults on Israel as “an act of sheer evil” and proclaimed, “we must be crystal clear, we stand with Israel.”

However, the President’s address drew sharp criticism from conservative quarters for a glaring omission: Iran, a known state sponsor of Hamas, wasn’t mentioned even once.

“Biden spoke for 10 minutes and 12 seconds, then turned his back and shuffled away,” noted a social media post from a Republican National Committee-associated account. “He did not even mention Iran.”

Other conservative figures and media personalities were quick to chime in with their disapproval.

Joe Concha, a Fox News contributor, remarked on social media, “14 Americans are dead. An unknown number have been taken hostage. President Biden just spoke for 11 minutes before quickly walking away without taking any questions. No mention of Iran whatsoever. Utterly irresponsible and weak on both fronts.”

Marc Thiessen, a former speechwriter for President George W. Bush and current Fox News contributor, pointedly asked, “Biden gives a speech on attack on Israel and does not even mention Iran!”

This sentiment was echoed by Fox News contributor Katie Pavlich, who stated, “No mention of Iran in Biden’s remarks and restrained verbal response to the murder of Americans. Weak.”

The ties between Iran and Hamas have been the subject of scrutiny and reportage.

The Wall Street Journal highlighted that Iranian security officials had greenlit Hamas’ attack plan on Israel during an October 2nd meeting in Beirut.

Despite such revelations, Secretary of State Antony Blinken maintained on CNN, “We have not yet seen evidence that Iran directed or was behind this particular attack, but there is certainly a long relationship.”

However, in a televised speech, Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei seemed to laud the attackers, stating, “We kiss the hands of those who planned the attack.”

He further added, “This destructive earthquake has destroyed some critical structures [in Israel], which will not be repaired easily. … The Zionist regime’s own actions are to blame for this disaster.”

Biden’s National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan, during a press conference, did acknowledge Iran’s complicity due to its historical financial and material backing of Hamas.

Yet, he added, “Now, as to the question of whether Iran knew about this attack in advance or helped plan or direct this attack, we do not as of the moment I’m standing here at the podium have confirmation of that.”

      Your blind prejudice, ignorance, and total lack of awareness are an embarrassment to you, your family, and the human race in general. It is your knee-jerk, biased viewpoint that fuels divisiveness and closes the door on meaningful communication.

    If the Sec of State doesn’t have the information about Iran and Hamas. Maybe he needs to talk to the CIA people. I’m sure they have some information on that. Biden is weak, he makes
    the US weak. This is why the world is behaving badly towards
    country.

    To the contrary, the prior Israeli Ambassador to the United States described Biden’s message to Israel as “The most powerful statement of support ever offered by an American President.” The reason “the world is behaving badly towards us” is because of our dysfunctional Congress and its Republican ideologs, who are putting party above the Constitution, and sound bites above meaningful legislation. The MAGA fringe lunatics, e.g. Matt Gaetz, Marjory Taylor Green, Bobert, and others who cheer authoritarianism above a free democracy, instill uncertainty about America’s stability and hurt our international image. Do your homework before blatting out nonsense fed by conspiracy theorists and Trump.

    If the persecuted, harassed and lied about Orange Man Bad had managed to beat the despicable election fraud cheat and had been reelected, do you think Hamas would have dared to attack Israel?

    I don’t.

    Biden does not care about the Americans held hostage. Afghanistan proves that.

      Exactly!! He does not care about Americans. How many hundred billion to Ukraine as their reward for tens of millions in bribes? He left $85 billion in weaponry for terrorists I Afghanistan, left our people there, got 13 marines and navy killed, and now look where it is. Biden is a lying POS and is guilty of treason.
      How many have died, how many terrorists are in our country, how many traffickers med children form his open border policy?

    To condemn Iran, is to condemn Joe Biden regime.
    We should have stopped him from even contemplating gifts of American taxpayers money to
    self pronounced intentions of Destruction to America.
