Ralph Nader: Obama Sees No Constitutional Restraint To Presidential Ability ‘To Destroy Anybody’

February 25, 2014 by Personal Liberty News Desk


In his new book “Unstoppable,” Ralph Nader offers unabashed criticism of the “unconstitutional wars and unchecked militarism” of the three most recent Presidential Administrations.

Many of the Nation’s most dire modern foreign policy problems, Nader contends, can be blamed on President Barack Obama’s penchant for drone warfare.

The perpetually unsuccessful Presidential candidate takes the foreign policy of President Barack Obama and George Bush to task in his book.

Obama, Nader argues, “has extended the Bush doctrine by declaring his unilateral right, as secret prosecutor, judge, jury, and executioner, to destroy anybody, anywhere in the world, including American citizens, suspected to be engaged in alleged terrorist activities, all this vaguely and loosely defined as anti-U.S. security.”

But, unlike the blame-Bush liberals who have given Obama a free pass for even the most egregious of human rights abuses,

Nader extends the blame for America’s modern overseas military misadventures all the way back to the Clinton Administration.

He writes, “Inspired by the military actions of the Clinton administration, the Obama and Bush teams made a seamless transition into a militarized foreign policy, extending even further the illegal reach of wars of choice, invasions, incursions, and drone attacks, carried out irrespective of national sovereignties.”

Nader contends that his book, due out in April, is not meant to be acceptable to “knee-jerk rejectionists” of new political thinking in the United States.

“It’s meant for those who want to explore another beckoning pathway — one that can rescue our country from being driven further into the ground and turn into a nation where many more of its inhabitants can fulfill their potential.”

Nader continues, “A major area of potential for building alliances comes from the deep aversion many people have to the wars of empire and corporate control over their lives, particularly the ever-tightening influence of Big Business on the mainstream media, elections, and our local, state, and federal governments.”
