Qatar blockade’s impact on US national security interests | Omar Noureldin on CNN

Omar Noureldin, a foreign policy analyst and MPAC vice president & general counsel, joined CNN Newsroom to discuss the impact of the Saudi-led Qatar blockade on U.S. national security interests in the Middle East. Noureldin commented on Saudi Arabia’s hegemonic goals in the region and how its blame on Qatar for supporting terrorist groups is a way to deflect from itself. Further isolation of Qatar pushes them closer to Iran, which is not in America’s best interest.
