Barack Obama is a clever liar, more clever than George W. Bush. On Saturday, Obama said:
“The drawdown in Iraq allowed us to refocus on Afghanistan and achieve major victories against al Qaeda and Osama bin Laden.”
President Obama deserves big props for his overall performance as a puppet and especially for this new lie. It is very clever and funny. Those who know the truth are entertained, and the sheep feel self-satisfaction for investing their trust in Mr. Obama and being rewarded for it.
But there is a sad element in this drama. Obama’s “major victories” in the war on terror are completely fake. Obama didn’t order Bin Laden’s death. He didn’t stop al-Qaeda because al-Qaeda doesn’t exist. He didn’t liberate Libya. He didn’t end the war in Iraq.
