Biden’s administration is dropping like flies. They are either incompetent or embroiled in scandal.

And now a top Biden advisor could lose their job after this moronic slip up.

Jake Sullivan, President Biden’s National Security Adviser, got additional scrutiny on social media this weekend over a 2023 tweet suggesting the Middle East was “quiet” after Iran conducted the first direct attack on Israel.

“What we said is [we] want to depressurize, de-escalate and ultimately integrate the Middle East region,” Sullivan said at The Atlantic Festival on Sept. 29.

“The war in Yemen is in its 19th month of truce. For now, the Iranian attacks against U.S. forces have stopped. Our presence in Iraq is stable. I emphasize for now because all of that can change and the Middle East region is quieter today than it has been in two decades,” he added.

Since that speech, Hamas has launched a deadly terrorist strike against Israel, killing over 1,000 people, and Iran launched its first direct attack on Israel over the weekend, using hundreds of drones and missiles.

Sullivan’s comment garnered harsh condemnation from social media users.

“This is who is running Biden’s foreign policy,” the Republican National Committee wrote on X.

“Hard to believe, but this was 6 months ago,” Middle East Institute Senior Fellow Charles Lister wrote on X.

“Jake Sullivan has been attached to some of our biggest foreign disasters, including Benghazi,” journalist Sharyl Attkisson posted on X. “Who knows why he continues to achieve high positions making more mistakes.”

“Biden’s Administration: Full of liars!” Leo Terrell, a Fox News contributor, posted on X.

Former United States Army Reserve lieutenant, author, and commentator Tony Schaffer wrote on X that Sullivan is a “moron extraordinaire” who promotes a “utopian fantasy.”

Sullivan has been embroiled in a number of scandals in recent years, many of which have been raised by conservatives on social media in light of his Middle East remarks, notably the Biden administration’s disastrous exit from Afghanistan.

In the days following the Biden administration’s withdrawal from Afghanistan, Sullivan and the State Department were chastised for failing to specify how many Americans had been left behind.

In 2021, the top oversight Republican in Congress asked for Sullivan’s dismissal from his job due to his role in the “epicenter” of disastrous foreign policy decisions over the prior decade, including the Benghazi terror attack that murdered three American contractors and a US ambassador.

Sullivan worked as former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s deputy chief of staff and policy adviser at the State Department during the 2012 attack on the US Embassy in Benghazi, Libya.
