Ex-CIA chief Michael Hayden: the regional arrangements should not be upset by a young inexperienced Saudi

Araweelo News Network

Former NSA and CIA Director Michael Hayden said: expelling Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas from Qatar is a wrong and inefficient strategy.

Recently, Bahrain, Egypt, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates severed diplomatic ties with Qatar and this received many reactions for the past several days. Countries like USA, Russia, Turkey, India and Pakistan called for negotiations to resolve the dispute among the Arab countries.

In an interview with the Guardian, Former NSA and CIA Director Michael Hayden said: expelling Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas from Qatar is a wrong and inefficient strategy. Saudi Arabia wants to solve the Gulf Corporation Council (GCC) disputes and also making Qatar to kneel down before them with an anti-terrorism gesture.

Hayden, who served under President George W. Bush, criticized Trump during the election campaign.

He proceeded that in case that the Islamic groups leaders be expelled from Qatar, such groups will continue their activities as underground teams. Actually, Qatar with the right policy was managing and controlling these groups and Qatar leaders should be appreciated for their right choice of political strategy. In recent years, a great opportunity has been created in Doha to negotiate and resolve the problems with Taliban, Muslim brotherhood and Hamas.

He suggested to the current CIA director to not let a young inexperienced Saudi to upset the regional security arrangements. The U.S. should not forget its simultaneous responsibility for Riyadh and Doha and no preferences exist on this issue.

Bruce Riedel, the former CIA officer, also addressed this move by Saudi Arabia and the other Arab countries under its umbrella as irrational and hasty. Recently, Bruce has controversially claimed on the Brookings website that the $110 billion arms deal to Saudi Arabia is fake news.

There’s a battle inside the Trump administration over what to do about the Muslim Brotherhood, the group at the center of Monday’s pivotal decision by Saudi Arabia, Egypt, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain to cut ties with Qatar over allegations it supports terrorism, experts familiar with the situation say.
