Betrayel by Godfather

John Wright has put the finger on the pulse:
When Obama was elected in 2008 hopes for a new approach by Washington to the Arab and Muslim world were great.
But the things went wrong, very wrong:
Yet four years on the first black president has proved less a reincarnation of Martin Luther King as Al Capone, with his weekly kill lists and regular drone attacks on suspected militants in Pakistan slaughtering hundreds of innocent people - men, women, and children - while maiming and terrorizing many more. Judicial murder, the violation of sovereignty, and a blatant disregard for the lives and human rights of innocent people in Pakistan's tribal areas is the Obama administration's contribution to peace during its first term in office.
Portrait of a President as mafia don is very pungent and chilling because of the truth it contains.
