Rep. Ted Yoho: Syrian Peace Talks A Must Due to Obama's Leadership Vacuum

Newsmax TV's "Newsmax Prime"

Peace talks seeking to resolve Syria's five-year civil war began on Friday at the United Nations in Geneva — but they would not be necessary if the Obama administration was not "leading from behind," Rep. Ted Yoho told Newsmax TV on Friday.

"It's good that there's something started," the Florida congressman and member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee told "Newsmax Prime" host J.D. Hayworth. "Close to 300,000 people that have been murdered or slaughtered over there.

"The Syrian people are in so much death and destruction over there — and with the failure of leadership, it has led to the largest mass migration of people since World War II," he said.

"This is something that should've been intervened years ago, but you've got to start."

Yoho cited Syria as another example of why he introduced a resolution earlier this month to censure President Barack Obama over his inept foreign policy.

"We structured this resolution strictly on failed policies on national security that's put not just our nation at risk but the whole world," he told Hayworth. "His foreign policy and his domestic national security policy have made America weaker — and they've disrupted the whole world order.

"There's a tectonic plate shift in world power structure because America has not led. That's why you see the destruction you see in the Middle East and the migration of immigrants to Europe, which is disrupting the European Union."
