Commentary — 19 February 2013

So I guess we’ve moved on from poverty?


“I think we have to be very honest, let us not be deceived: Nixon, Bush, Obama, they’re war criminals.  They have killed innocent people in the name of the struggle for freedom, but they’re suspending the law, very much like Wall Street criminals. The law is suspended for them, but the law applies for the rest of us. You and I, brother Tavis, if we kill an innocent person we go to jail, and we’re going to be in there forever.”

Dr. Cornel West on Smiley & West

Not surprisingly as heard in the audio, co-host Tavis Smiley readily agrees.


Mo’Kelly’s quick take:

Yes, there are things that the president is empowered to do and may do that we as ordinary citizens can not.  Every president has called for military action which results in the deaths of civilians.  Every…single…one.  But…grouping President Obama with the president most responsible for the expansion of the Vietnam war or the president responsible for the start of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars is a dishonest juxtaposition by every reasonable yardstick.  Hopefully nobody supports the killing of innocents or civilians, but this argument by Dr. West is downright disingenuous.

Bill Clinton and Kosovo really did happen too.  Do I really need to go any further?
