Greta Van Susteren interviews former U.N. Ambassador John Bolton regarding the Russian situation generally and in particular the latest release of information that Russia has violated the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces, or INF, Treaty.
Bolton says the Russians have been believed to be in violation of the treaty for quite some time but that the Obama regime didnâ€™t mention it because it was politically expedient not to do so. He believes that the only reason that the regime acknowledged the violations was out of fear the information was about to leak, which would make them look even more inept and submissive.
Ambassador Bolton says he is aware of other treaty violations as well as probable chemical weapons violations. He calls the actions that Russia has taken in Syria opening the question of their compliance as well as that of Iran.
As far as the sanctions imposed by the U.S. against Russia, Bolton labels them as marginal increases which will reinforce Putinâ€™s view that he can do as he pleases in Ukraine. He says in that regard, the imposition of new sanctions may have been worse than no new sanctions at all.
