Subject: Clinton's blindness
Thomas M. Of Chicago called you blind and
mindless because of your support for Hillary.
I find the Obamites to be fairly mindless because
they do not question their own candidate.
During the horrible ABC debate, Obama said that
he would consult George H. W. Bush because
he "had a good foreign policy". I was dumbfounded
and Googled "Obama and George H. W. Bush".
I got lots of hits on Obama speeches in which
he says that his foreign policy models are JFK,
George H. W. Bush, and Ronald Reagan. Now
my jaw really dropped. Is Barack Obama naïve
or was he simply unaware of the arming of Osama
Bin Laden with 10,000 Stinger missiles,
the October Surprise and Reagan/Bush's secret
arms sales to our enemy in Iran, or Iran/Contra
with the secret Army, Navy and Air Force run
by mercenaries and funded from off-shore accounts
filled by Right-Wing billionaires, the horrible
death toll in Honduras from right-wing death squads
that Ambassador John Negroponte swore never happened,
or the BCCI scandal that funded the
secret arms sales to Saddam Hussein (that's where
the chem and bio weapons came from, folks),
or the invasion of Panama (our first preemptive
Good foreign policy????
The worst part is that Barack would not
use Bill Clinton.
I know that Clinton ignored Rwanda, but let's
check his foreign policy accomplishments.
I remember watching his Camp David meetings with
Netanyahu, Arafat and King Hussein of Jordan.
Those foreign leaders were ebullient in their
praise of Clinton. King Hussein and Netanyahu both said
that Clinton was "by far" the most capable and
knowledgeable President they have ever worked with.
That agreement between Israel and the PLO was
derailed by Ehud Barack and Arafat later on.
Clinton hammered out the original détente
agreement with North Korea (you know, the one that Bush
derailed and finally revived in basically the
same form), Clinton's handling of the Kosovar conflict was
exemplary (if war can be so).
He (with NATO) returned the Kosovars to their
homeland and then put sanctions on the Serbians
until they gave up Milosevic, which they did.
Then Clinton brought Milosevic to the Hague for trial
by international judges (rather than the kangaroo
trial of Saddam) with no loss of American lives.
Don't we wish that all international conflict
could have been resolved with such multilateral involvement?
And, of course, Clinton was absolutely loved
around the world (and still is).
Reagan/Bush were nearly as reviled as Bush's
son is today.
I have asked many Obamites about this, and they
blow me off. No questioning the Messiah.
If Barack is not naïve about this, then
it can be assumed that he truly appreciates that kind of
rogue foreign policy and his flock is okay with
that. Now that, Thomas M. of Chicago,
is blindness and mindlessness.
