Princeton professor calls Obama a ‘war criminal`
Washington: A Princeton professor has launched a withering attack on the White House’s covert drone program, by likening President Barack Obama to a “war criminal.”
Cornel West, the prominent black academic and activist who has consistently been a harsh Obama critic, took on the administration’s drone policy and said that ‘the chickens are coming home to roost.’
During a radio show, Prof West pointed out that over 200 children have been killed so far in ‘these are war crimes,’ Politico reports.
West, who has previously said that ‘brother Barack was just completely mesmerized by the acceptance of the establishment,’ compared Obama to former Presidents George W. Bush and Richard Nixon.
He said Nixon, Bush, Obama, are war criminals, who have killed innocent people in the name of the struggle for freedom.
He said that they``re suspending the law, very much like Wall Street criminals.
