Secretary of State Hillary Clinton must take the crown for uttering the biggest falsehood of the year so far, after she claimed that President Barack Obama has followed words with actions, when in reality his every major policy has mirrored or intensified the Bush agenda.
“I think the President’s actions in these last 100 days do match actions with words,” stated Clinton during a House Foreign Affairs Committee meeting yesterday, which is perhaps the most gargantuan lie of 2009 so far.
Clinton was responding to Ron Paul’s comments that the Obama administration should tread carefully in the nuclear-armed country of Pakistan.
As we documented at length earlier this week, on every single major issue that Obama promised he would work to bring “change,” the exact same policies forged by the Bush administration have been continued.
From the failure to prosecute top officials in government and intelligence who ordered torture, to the failure to withdraw U.S. troops “immediately” from Iraq, as Obama promised (his plan would leave tens of thousands in the country even after the “withdrawal”), to the staggering support and continuation for the Bush administration’s illegal warrantless wiretapping program – on every issue Obama has done the exact opposite of what he said he would before the election.
And in some cases he has even intensified the Bush agenda – with 30,000 extra troops being sent to Afghanistan and bombing raids on Pakistan being increased, while Hillary herself warmongers about Pakistan being a “mortal threat to the world.”
Meanwhile, Obama’s war chest demands came to a total of around $800 billion in war funds and subsidiary costs just to cover the rest of 2009, a bigger tab than George W. Bush ever got.
Does any of this sound like a move towards bringing the troops home and rolling back the American empire and police state, as Obama promised before he was elected? Is Obama really following words with actions or merely following orders from the same CFR and Bilderberg masters that Hillary Clinton answers to?
Watch the clip below (sick bag on standby for Hillary’s disingenuous praise for Ron Paul supporters).
