While stepping back from governing to politic, look pretty and tell lies… Obama allowed the CIA, the Pentagon, profiteers and criminals to attack dozens of nations who have not attacked us for destruction, extraction, exploitation and extortion. This shameful display of aggression, in our name, has made America a pariah state.
