“Barack Obama was a senator before he was president. He didn’t do much as a senator, but he did a couple of things, including one he was particularly proud
of. In fact, if you looked at his website before the primaries, he highlighted the fact that, during the Israeli invasion of Lebanon in 2006, he cosponsored a
Senate resolution demanding that the United States do nothing to impede Israel’s military actions until they had achieved their objectives and censuring Iran and
Syria because they were supporting resistance to Israel.”

–Noam Chomsky, in answer to a question from David Barsamian, in a piece at Antiwar.com, originally published by Tom Engelhardt, and excerpted from a new book by Chomsky, Power Systems.
