you write of the possibility that ” the sagacious Barack Obama brought to a premature end the reign of the neocons on American foreign policy.”
if that is so, why are all his advisers necons or liberal interventionists? from gates to victoria nuland the kaganite (and cheney adviser).
if that is so, why does the us support the genocide in yemen in fealty to the saudis?
if that be so, why does obama order the assassination of thousands via drones, many perhaps most innocent.
could it be that he didn’t have the courage to act alone? is not that the most economical answer. our closest ally britain had stepped away; pope francis you may remember had all catholics in the us praying that weekend for peace. there were even special masses. rare indeed for a pope to intervene in us foreign policy.
no, obama looks out for #1. he is a war criminal who is trying to rewrite history using goldberg as his scribe.
he has guile, but no sagacity.
