...our highly intelligent and cool, pragmatic president is now vastly expanding the use of secret war, subversion, sabotage and murder into even more countries around the world, and giving America's secret, unaccountable death squads and covert operators even more power to carry out their lawless operations. As one Pentagon mandarin gushed, Obama is allowing "things that the previous administration did not."However, I think he gives to much credit to Obama for this rather surprising development (for most people) by giving credence to the way the Washington Post frames the story. In order to preserve the myths about "democracy", they must suggest that Obama is running the show.
That quote comes from a remarkably candid story in the Washington Post on Obama's "surge" in America's secret war on the world, which now encompasses no fewer than 75 countries.

The fact that our ruling class has been so successful at expanding the war in Afghanistan-Pakistan clearly demonstrates to me that they could not have found a better fake leader than Obama to lull the American people to sleep.
