Rep. Mast to Newsmax: Failed Gaza Pier ‘Came Down to Politics’

Rep. Brian Mast, R-Fla., told Newsmax on Wednesday that the debacle that became the U.S.-built pier in Gaza “came down to politics” because the Biden administration was trying to appease both sides of the Israel-Hamas conflict.

Earlier on Wednesday it was announced that the United States was dismantling the $312 million pier built to help move humanitarian aid into Gaza. The pier did not live up to expectations as it was under almost constant repair and only had 23 days of total use. Rough seas hampered much of the operation since it was first anchored on May 17.

Mast said that he “rolls his eyes” at the project “more than anybody” saying that the motivation behind the pier’s construction had more to do with appeasement than it did with a practical function.
