the White House authorized a massive expansion of clandestine military and intelligence operations worldwide, sanctioning activities in more than a dozen countries and giving the military's combatant commanders significant new authority to conduct unconventional warfare.Ahh, Plus ça change!
More than any other single establishment candidate, Barack Obama has rendered presidential campaign rhetoric, and more generally, high-flying talk of principles, as something to be entirely disregarded by any voting public. Barack Obama, more than any other single president in the history of the United States, has proved the lie upon which the American political system is founded. Barack Obama, the adult, has lived the slithering life of an ambitious, selfish, self-serving politician. It is now glaring. If the BP Gulf oil disaster hasn't convinced you of this, then the orders for a world-wide assassination bureau ought to.
Change? Sorry, they don't give change.
