    It is time for President Obama to recognise that his strategy is weakening his country and making the United States more vulnerable to attack, says Nile Gardiner. No leader in American history has gone to greater lengths than Barack Obama to make amends for his own country. From condemnation of American “arrogance” in a speech in Strasbourg to acknowledging U.S. “mistakes” before millions of Muslims on Arab television, Obama has rarely missed an opportunity to apologise for the actions of the American people. President Obama has elevated the art of national self-loathing to new heights, and seems to delight in...
  • Obama Breaks With Gates, Cancels Nuke Program (Effectively begins dismantling of Nuclear Arsenal)

    The New Republic - The Plank ^ | 12.05.2009 | Michael Crowley
    Obama's new budget plan includes a little-noted sea change in U.S. nuclear policy, and a step towards his vision of a denuclearized world. It provides no funding for the Reliable Replacement Warhead program, created to design a new generation of long-lasting nuclear weapons that don't need to be tested. (The military is worried that a nuclear test moratorium in effect since 1992 might endanger the reliability of an aging US arsenal.) But this spring Obama issued a bold call for a world free of nuclear weapons, and part of that vision entails leading by example. That means halting programs that...
  • Sorensen says lawyers too silent on torture (New Camelot barf)

    05/11/2009 10:14:29 AM PDT · by stan_sipple · 4 replies · 407+ views ^ | 5-10-2009 | Don Walton
    Too many American lawyers remained silent while the United States conducted illegal torture and the Constitution was violated by disregard for the rule of law, Ted Sorensen told law graduates Saturday. In a commencement address at the University of Nebraska College of Law, his alma mater, Sorensen urged the graduates to act with courage and embrace integrity in their professional pursuits. “Most of you as new lawyers will soon find it easy to make a buck but find it hard to make a difference,” he said, according to an advance copy of the speech obtained by the Journal Star. Sorensen,...

    La Prensa (Managua, Nicaragua) 5/7/09 (Full translation of speech by Oscar Arias, President of Costa Rica, at the Summit of the Americas meeting in Trinidad & Tobago on April 18, 2009) “I have the impression that every time Caribbean and Latin American countries get together with the president of the United States of America it is to ask for things or to demand something. Almost always it’s to blame the United States for our past, present and future ills. I don’t believe that is at all just. We cannot forget that Latin America had universities before the United States created...

    *** At G20 .....Obama lent credibility to buffoons and despots. What wisdom did he glean from Daniel Ortega' s hate-filled excoriations? Fidel Castro has already hurled back Obama's olive branch, slamming the door on freeing political prisoners. Rather than celebrate the political legacy that put him in the White House, he breaks the bonds of our political traditions. NAMES REDACTED Westwood, NJ *** .........."righties" made such a fuss over Pres Obama's "World Capitulation Tour".......not simply because he threw the US under the bus in a fit of self-flagellation. It's because he was utterly ineffective....we were treated to the spectacle of...

    The Obama administration has done it again. Now we are sorry for something that hasn't even been proven, man-made climate change. Today Hillary Clinton apologized for the United States at a two day meeting of the world's major polluters. Just what the heck are these people thinking? Maybe it's me, but I am damned tired of the United States leading the world in apologies. We have done more to feed and protect the world than any other nation in the history of this planet. Its about time this Administration show some pride in this country instead of finding something to...

An ACLU lawyer says they prove that Abu Ghraib 'was not aberrational.' By Peter Wallsten, Julian Barnes and Greg Miller April 23, 2009 Reporting from Washington -- The Obama administration agreed late Thursday to release dozens of photographs depicting alleged abuse by U.S. personnel during the Bush administration of prisoners in Iraq and Afghanistan.

At one stop after another -- the latest in Latin America, where Hugo Chávez expressed wishes to be his friend -- Barack Obama fulfilled his campaign vows to show the nations of the world that a new American leadership stood ready to atone for the transgressions of the old.

    Meeting face-to-face with Mexican President Felipe Calderon, President Obama on Thursday said the U.S. is to blame for much of Mexico's drug violence, and he set up a major congressional gun-control battle by calling on the Senate to ratify a treaty designed to track and cut the flow of guns to other countries. Mr. Obama said he wants to renew a ban on some semiautomatic weapons but that it is not likely to pass Congress. Instead, he called for the Senate to ratify a decade-old hemispherewide treaty that would require nations to mark all weapons produced in the country and...

    SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic — It has become a recurring theme of Hillary Rodham Clinton’s early travels as the chief diplomat of the United States: she says that American policy on a given issue has failed, and her foreign listeners fall all over themselves in gratitude. On Friday, Mrs. Clinton said here that the uncompromising policy of the Bush administration toward Cuba had not worked. That, she said, is why President Obama decided earlier this week to lift restrictions on travel and financial transfers for United States residents with relatives in Cuba. “We are continuing to look for productive ways...

    Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano apologized to veterans in a FOX News interview after a DHS report labeled returning troops at risk for embracing right-wing extremism. Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano apologized to veterans after a report issued by her department said troops returning from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan were at risk for being recruited by right-wing extremists. "To the extent veterans read it as an accusation ... an apology is owed," she said during an on-air interview on FOX News Thursday, a day after veterans' groups and members of Congress blasted her for the report, which they...

    I grew up in a matriarchal household, sandwiched between sisters and presided over by Adolph Eichmann’s ex-secretary, “Klara.” Nobody knows how Klara managed to immigrate to America, but she never set foot on Ellis Island. It was the early ’50s, “Ike” was president, and New Jersey was still notorious for its prewar flirtations with the pro-Nazi, “German American Bund.” My parents were in their early 20s and had no inkling of Klara’s background; they just knew she was a no-nonsense disciplinarian. I learned the wisdom of apologizing for my mistakes in a giddy-up hurry. My father and I had an...

    The Obama administration wants to reduce oil consumption, increase renewable energy supplies and cut carbon dioxide emissions in the most ambitious transformation of energy policy in a generation. But the world’s oil giants are not convinced that it will work. Even as Washington goes into a frenzy over energy, many of the oil companies are staying on the sidelines, balking at investing in new technologies favored by the president, or even straying from commitments they had already made. Royal Dutch Shell said last month that it would freeze its research and investments in wind, solar and hydrogen power, and focus...

    We have recently heard many shocking stories of brutal killings and ruthless violence related to drug cartels warring with Mexican and US officials. It is approaching the fever pitch of a full blown crisis. Unfortunately, the administration is not likely to waste this opportunity to further expand government. Hopefully, we can take a deep breath and look at history for the optimal way to deal with this dangerous situation, which is not unprecedented. Alcohol prohibition in the 1920’s brought similar violence, gangs, lawlessness, corruption and brutality. The reason for the violence was not that making and selling alcohol was inherently...

    Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton arrived here Wednesday with the clearest acknowledgment yet from a senior Obama administration official of the role the United States plays in the violent drug trade racking Mexico.“Our insatiable demand for illegal drugs fuels the drug trade,” she said, using unusually blunt language. “Our inability to prevent weapons from being illegally smuggled across the border to arm these criminals causes the deaths of police officers, soldiers and civilians.”
