Obama is doing the bidding of Osama

Barack Obama is doing the bidding of Osama bin Laden. It’s utterly clear that this is true. Obama is doing what bin Laden desires by buying into the Neocon approach to warmongering in the Middle East. Obama has fully bought into the world view of George W. Bush and Dick Cheney. Consider this excerpt from an article by Alan Grayson:

Today, the war in Afghanistan becomes America’s longest war. Longer than the war in Vietnam. Longer than the Korean War.It took America two years to end World War I, and bring peace to the world. World War II was a little harder; that took us 3½ years to finish off.

The war in Afghanistan is over eight years old. And we’re sending in more troops. We’re not getting out. We getting deeper in. Would you like to know why? It’s not hard to find the answers. Just read the transcript of Osama Bin Laden’s 2004 speech.

Bin Laden’s plan was to bankrupt America, and he’s well on his way. All he had to do was press America’s SELF-DESTRUCT button with a dozen men with box-cutters, and we’re helpless to turn off the fearful war-mongering. Here’s Grayson’s solution:

And at all times, Bin Laden’s essential strategy has remained the same. Not, as so many think, to launch more attacks on American soil, but rather to make us destroy ourselves: “we are continuing this policy in bleeding America to the point of bankruptcy . . . .”

Listen to Bin Laden summing up his strategy: “the real loser is … you. It is the American people and their economy . . . .”

How strange. It turns out that America’s chief military strategist for the past decade is Osama Bin Laden himself. We’ve been doing exactly what he has wanted us to do: spend staggering sums on the military, until the American economy is bled dry.

But it doesn’t have to be that we. We are a democracy. We can choose peace. I have voted against Bin Laden’s strategy to destroy America, and I will continue to do so. But I’ve done more than that. I have introduced a bill called The War is Making You Poor Act, HR 5353.

    At a well-informed site titled Informed Comment, we are given more disturbing context regarding the missing $4 billion intended as civilian aid:

    Meanwhile, Congress cut $4 billion out of civilian aid to Afghanistan, owing to fears that it was just being eaten up by corruption. Afghanistan is listed as the second most corrupt country in the world after Somalia by Transparency International, and reports have circulated for months about mysterious large shipments of cash out of Kabul airport to Dubai. It has also been alleged that money paid to security contractors in Afghanistan who oversee the safety of US convoys is often in turn paid out to Taliban as a bribe not to attack the convoys.

    That $4 billion amounts to $40 for every U.S. tax payer. The military-industrial complex just picked your pocket for $40. How did it feel?
