Appearing as the “one lucky guy” on Fox News’ “Outnumbered,” White House correspondent Ed Henry said that with the impending Iran deal and the collapse of Yemen, the balance of power in the Middle East is “tilting towards Iran.” (REPORT: Obama Plans To Make Iran His Key Middle East Ally)

“I think the bigger picture is what General Flynn was talking about,” Henry said, in reference to former Obama appointee Lt. General Michael Flynn’s comments on “Fox News Sunday” that there was an “almost complete breakdown of order” in the Middle East.

“This is not just about the nuclear deal,” Henry continued. “This is about Iran trying to gain influence all throughout the Mideast and particularly in Yemen, backing the Houthi rebels.”

“And it appears that the balance of power is tilting towards Iran,” he admitted. “And that’s coloring these negotiations.” (VIDEO: Chris Wallace Pans Obama’s ‘Confused’ Middle East Policy: ‘It Is A Mess’)
