Ben Swann again, this time directly putting Obama in the hot seat. The president sidesteps the unconstitutional murder of several American citizens by simply claiming that he never “confirmed” these happened at all. History is certainly written by the victors. It didn’t happen unless the president writes it up himself. So, no impeachable crime there.
He also tries to obfuscate his signing statement about NOT going after Americans for unconstitutional “indefinite detention” while ignoring the question about his own legal team challenging the federal court injunction against same.
Obama’s take on Syria is Goebbels worthy. The US and its partners have turned Syria into a killing field. Their paid mercenaries and Jihadis engage in ethnic cleansing, rape and the murder of children. This has no bearing on the president’s fictional presentation of the situation. Nor does his rosy assessment of war crimes perpetrated against Libya, and the collusion with Libyan terrorist group LIFG enter the discussion. Nor the 60,000+ dead in that country, the Al Qaeda victories or the use of the same officially designated terrorist group LIFG in Syria today.
On the torture issue, Obama’s half-truth is a lie so insidious that it demands further inspection. Obama claims to have banned torture. By this he means that he banned torture by US personnel. His policies explicitly maintained the practice of “rendition” or “torture by proxy” — the practice of sending suspects to other nations to be tortured on behalf of the United States. Obama has clearly NOT banned torture, as he claims here, but simply made it a covert, black-op, unaccountable to the American people and kept behind the scenes. This is an improvement?
