Niall Ferguson, author, historian and Harvard professor, weighed in on Barack Obama’s disastrous foreign policy today on Sunday Morning Futures with Maria Bartiromo.

Maria this is going horribly wrong. He’s really created an explosion of sectarian conflict right across the region. And I think now he’s being check-mated by Vladimir Putin the Russian president who you said a moment ago has taken in the initiative. It’s really the first time since the early seventies that the Russians have been in a position to play the part of power broker in the Middle East.

Ferguson also pointed out to Bartiromo that Middle East violence has increased by a factor of six since 2010. The more Obama has played the ‘kicked the can down the road’ the more the violence has escalated.
