There’s a new bus thumpin’ down the Autobahn, baby.
Powerline noticed that Obama’s politics don’t stop at the water’s edge. In fact, they start up even worse on the other side of the water:
Obama’s constant criticism of his predecessor is doubly reprehensible because it is false. Thus, in his Strasbourg speech Obama said:
“I don’t believe that there is a contradiction between our security and our values. And when you start sacrificing your values, when you lose yourself, then over the long term that will make you less secure. When we saw what happened in Abu Ghraib, that wasn’t good for our security — that was a recruitment tool for terrorism. Humiliating people is never a good strategy to battle terrorism.”
Obama thus repeats the slander that the pointless abuse of prisoners at Abu Ghraib by a handful of low-life Army Reservists was part of President Bush’s “strategy to battle terrorism.” This is an absurdity. The Reservists in question violated every known policy, which is why they went to jail when their crimes were discovered. For Obama to defame his own country in this way is contemptible.
Those guards were already being prosecuted long before the Mediocrity Media found out about it, too.
That sound you heard? That was Obama throwing the entire country under the bus.
