Dinesh D’Souza, co-director of the film "2016 — Obama's America," and author of the new book "Obama’s America," told Newsmax TV that President Barack Obama’s policies in the Middle East have “emboldened our enemies” and fueled anti-American attacks such as the assault on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi.

“The important point is that Obama deliberately undermined our allies and doesn’t seem to mind so much when forces hostile to America come to power,” said D’Souza in an exclusive interview on Monday, while also pointing to Obama’s willingness to embrace the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt over the military, which has been a friend to the U.S.

“There is a power struggle going on right now between the Egyptian military, which has been allied with America, and the Muslim Brotherhood, which is the largest organization in radical Islam,” he observed. “The Obama people have been telling the Egyptian military, ‘You better step down, turn away and turn over power to the Muslim Brotherhood or we will cut off U.S. aid.’”

Unlike President Jimmy Carter, who may not have fully understood the ramifications of withdrawing support from the then Shah of Iran , “Obama knows full well that weakening the hand of the Egyptian military will consolidate the power of the Muslim Brotherhood and that’s why he’s doing it.”

D’Souza insists that “it’s downright baffling” American voters know so little about the man who has occupied the White House for nearly four years and that’s one reason his film now ranks as the second highest grossing political documentary of all time and the fourth highest grossing documentary in the U.S.

“The film has struck a chord
because people are hungry for information about Obama,” said D’Souza on the eve of his film’s release on DVD. “He kind of came out of nowhere. But now, four years later, at the end of his first term, it’s downright baffling that so much is unknown about Obama.

“It’s fair to say that whatever your politics, you’re likely to leave our film saying, ‘Wow, I just know a whole lot about Obama that I just didn’t know 90 minutes earlier when I walked into the theater or when I put the DVD into my machine,” explained D’Souza.

Doug Sain, one of the producers of “2016: Obama’s America,” tells Newsmax TV that the mainstream media has not done a good job in filling in the blanks for voters.

“Our sincere hope is that they have a deeper understanding of what really drives this president and motivates his decision-making,” according to Sain. “I think that deep understanding will help people of all audiences have a better understanding of what direction he might take if he were to have a second term.”

Sain said that Obama has “very deep-seeded issues” that take him in a direction that is outside the norm of what most Democrats and Republicans talk about.

“When President Obama talks about sharing the wealth, he’s not just talking about Americans sharing it internally,” Sain explained. “He’s also talking about sharing that wealth globally and that’s really a radical transformation from what’s been discussed in the past.”

D’Souza conceded that he wanted to release the DVD of his film prior to the Nov. 6 presidential election.

“I just wanted to take a page out of Michael Moore’s film ‘Fahrenheit 9-1-1,’” he said. “Michael Moore realized it wasn’t just the election but that there’s a heightened interest in politics in the months leading up to an election.

He said Americans ponder larger issues in the weeks leading up to the election.

“People begin to think not just about who to vote for, but larger questions about the American Dream, the direction of the country and the debt. So it’s a timely occasion to have the film.”

D’Souza dismissed Obama’s response to the film, particularly his comment that it was “an attempt to dishonestly smear me” and he said that the White House initially tried to ignore the film.

“Then when the snowball became too big and gathered too much snow, they decided it’s time to try to blast it,” recalled D’Souza. “And, yet, their attack on it was so ineffective, so clumsy, so juvenile that they alleged a bunch of factual errors in the film that are not errors at all.”
