Barack Obama, Traitor
In today’s issue we republish an op-ed piece by David J. Kramer, a former Bush administration State Department official in Eastern Europe. Kramer’s scathing condemnation of Barack Obama’s cowardly betrayal of American allies in the region is required reading for anyone who is concerned about Russian imperialist aggression.
In a second piece, from the Huffington Post of all places, Ken Blackwell documents how, at every geopolitical turn, Obama’s “foreign policy” has been naive, misguided and ended in failure.
In an original column, scholar Ethan Burger points out the folly of allowing Russia to join the WTO without embracing the WTO’s core values, making Russia a fox in the proverbial hen house.
Finally, in our lead editorial, we show how Russia is rapidly becoming a world-leading pipeline of dangerous offensive weapons to rogue terrorist states like Syria and venal terrorist groups like Hezbollah.
It all adds up to just one thing: Obama is, willfully or not, undeniably a traitor to American values and the nation that elected him to lead it.
We feel we have been lied to. We endorsed John McCain for president for the very reason that we felt exactly this sort of atrocity would result from an Obama administration that knew absolutely nothing about foreign policy and was instead obsessed with installing the mechanisms of socialism in the domestic political system. We were told by Obama’s advocates that he would fight for the principles he espoused and would set a new standard of expectations for places like Russia, and would defend American values and security interests vigorously.
How can we but conclude that those advocates lied to us? The evidence is irrefutable and abundant that Obama never had any such intentions, much less capacities. Now, the world and those who love freedom in Russia must look elsewhere for leadership, and indeed must condemn as we do the treacherous policies of the Obama administration which have brought a new level of horror to neo-Soviet Russia, encouraging the malignant Putin regime to become ever more aggressive and dangerous in pursuit of its evil, totalitarian goals.
