Obama: Agent of Change? Well, Agent of Somethin’
Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah says — and he should know — there is no difference between the policy of “absolute support” for Israel between Barack Obama and George W. Bush.
Obama’s own spokesman Robert Gibbs affirmed that, as under Bush, “all options remain on the table” with regard to Iran.
A recent executive order from the new president allows the CIA to continue to operate its “safe houses” — possibly a torture loophole.
Even President Obama’s massive stimulus plan continues the print-and-spend insanity preferred by the former administration.
Don’t forget Obama’s new Homeland Security appointment of a “cybercrimes expert” as general counsel. You know, instead of abolishing Bush’s gargantuan Homeland Security bureaucracy altogether.
So aside from closing GuantÃ¡namo Bay in an extremely literal sense — after all, many of the detainees will remain such — what “change” have we witnessed thus far?
