Say what you will about Ralph Nader but what you can not say is that he mince’s his words. He makes some very serious charges that can not be ignored and I only hope to be around to see how they play out.
Charge 1. “…“He’s gone beyond George W. Bush in drones, for example. He thinks the world is his plate, that national sovereignties mean nothing, drones can go anywhere. They can kill anybody that he suspects and every Tuesday he makes the call on who lives and who dies, supposed suspects in places like Yemen and Pakistan and Afghanistan, and that is a war crime and he ought to be held to account.”
Charge 2. “…“I don’t know whether George W. Bush ever read the Constitution,” said Nader. “This man taught the Constitution, and this is what we got.”…Ralph Nader: Obama’s a ‘war criminal’ This is what sets the example for law enforcement at the local level.
