Barack Obama … War Criminal … Baby Killer?
What a difference the outrage of such an attack is when it is done under a Barack Obama administration as opposed to GWB. Is that the “Change We Can believe in” … bias media reporting?
For most of George W. Bush’s Presidency the LEFT wanted Bush to be brought up on war crimes for the killing of civilians in Iraq and Afghanistan. The question is will the LEFT now call Barack Obama a war criminal for killing civilians? So GWB is supposed to be tried for war crimes and Obama gets a pass? The recent US air strike that killed at least 20 people is as WAPO calls it, a concrete sign of Obama’s Pakistan policy.
The separate strikes on two compounds, coming three hours apart and involving five missiles fired from Afghanistan-based Predator drone aircraft, were the first high-profile hostile military actions taken under Obama’s four-day-old presidency. A Pakistani security official said in Islamabad that the strikes appeared to have killed at least 10 insurgents, including five foreign nationals and possibly even “a high-value target” such as a senior al-Qaeda or Taliban official.
If the LEFT had their way, but Obama gets a free pass for doing the same
The Huffington Post had previously posted an article that Obama would review potential war crimes in the Bush White House. Will he review his own Administration? But I guess they will give “The Chosen One” a pass as well.
However, the UK Times is reporting that President Obama ‘orders Pakistan drone attacks’ that is a clear sign that the controversial military policy begun by George W. Bush has not changed. They also reported that 3 children were killed in the attack. So where is the outrage from the LEFT? Where is the call for a war crimes trial for Obama as they have clambered for years when this occurred under Bush? Why isn’t the LEFT and the MSM calling Obama a baby killer? They would have if GWB did this. The Left seems not to condemn, but only for Obama to get Afghanistan right.
The Gateway Pundit reminds of of Obama comments from August 14, 2007.
“We’ve got to get the job done there and that requires us to have enough troops so that we’re not just air-raiding villages and killing civilians, which is causing enormous pressure over there.”
President Hamid Karzai condemned a U.S. operation he said killed 16 Afghan civilians, while hundreds of villagers denounced the American military during an angry demonstration Sunday.
Karzai said the killing of innocent Afghans during U.S. military operations “is strengthening the terrorists.”
Afghans protest US on the report that civilians were killed in airstrickes recent U.S. military backed raid in the eastern Laghman province.
Thousands of Afghans protested against President Hamid Karzai and the United States on Sunday over reports of fresh civilian deaths caused by U.S.-led troops during a raid against Taliban militants.
The issue of civilian casualties is sensitive in Afghanistan and has eroded public support for Karzai’s government and the foreign troops backing it.
