Radical liberal professor Cornel West explained yesterday that President Obama – like former Presidents Nixon and Bush – was guilty of war crimes because of his drone program.

“I think my dear brother that the chickens are coming home to roost,” said Cornel when asked about the issue by radio show host Tavis Smiley asserting that “over 200 children” had been killed by immoral drone strikes.

“These are war crimes,” West added. “Let us be very honest, let us not be deceived – Nixon, Bush, Obama, they’re war criminals. They have killed innocent people in the name of the struggle for freedom but they are suspending the law.”

Cornel West also criticized Attorney General Eric Holder for using the Justice Department to back up the President.

“It’s so sad to the see the Justice Department – Brother Eric Holder ought to be ashamed of himself – but Eric Holder did the same thing,” West added, adding that while Holder made a name for himself talking about human rights he became a “rationalizer for war crimes” as soon as he got to the White House.
