Proving that conviction and consistency go hand and hand, Dr. Cornel West has once again called President Barack Obama a â€śwar criminalâ€ť for his proliferation of a drone war that has killed an estimated 216 innocent children, reports Raw Story.
Appearing on the radio with his comrade-in-arms, Tavis Smiley, West criticized the Commander-in-Chief for a strategic decision which seeks to minimize the loss of American lives by utilizing drone warfare that is both indiscriminate and inhumane.
â€śI think, my dear brother, the chickens are coming home to roost,â€ť West told Smiley. â€śWeâ€™ve been talking about this for a good while, the immorality of drones, dropping bombs on innocent people. Itâ€™s been over 200 children so far. These are war crimes.â€ť
In addition to the children killed, a recently exposed â€śWhite Paperâ€ť from the Department of Justice â€” an internal memo scooped by NBC â€” revealed that under the Obama Administration, citizens of the United States can be assassinated if they are believed to be members of Al-Qaeda.
