Cornel West: Obama is a 'war criminal' [View all]

Professor Cornel West continues to be an outspoken critic of Barack Obama, this time likening the president to a “war criminal.”

During Thursday’s “Tavis Smiley Show,” West took on the administration’s drone policy and said, “The chickens are coming home to roost.”

“We’ve been talking about this for a good while, the immorality of drones, dropping bombs on innocent people. It’s been over 200 children so far. These are war crimes.”

West said, “Let us not be deceived — Nixon, Bush, Obama, they’re war criminals,” adding that “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.”
