"Chérif’s interest in radical Islam, it was said at the 2008 trial, was rooted in his fury over the United States’ invasion of Iraq in 2003, particularly the mistreatment of Muslims held at Abu Ghraib prison."
And thanks to President Obama, the U.S. has been continuing and expanding their work. The public watches as the U.S. pours oil onto the fires of many countries, either overtly with drone attacks and U.S. troops on the ground, or covertly where reportedly dozens of countries suffer as U.S. special forces do their dirty work.
Is it not worth asking whether the Paris attacks would have happened if President Obama had brought significant change to the destructive U.S. policies he inherited in 2009? Is it not a real question whether those poor victims and their families and their society, along with scores of millions of Iraqis, Syrians, Afghanis, Yemenis, Pakistanis, and others are not martyrs to President Obama’s dedication to endless war?
Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld had the excuse of their ideology. They believe war fighting is good – for Israel and for the United States. But President Obama knows it’s wrong.. What’s his excuse?
