Obama the Wolf by Jim and Jean Anton

Obama is the Wolf who cried Boy.


OBAMA THE WOLF:   He's proved over and over again that he's a wolf.  

If at this point you don't agree, you are negligently naà ve.  Detainees in Guantanamo, who have been officially cleared for release, will die there.   He said he ended torture, but prisoners are still being tortured by force-feeding.  Black sites, where detainees are rendered, still exist.   He stated the treatment of whistle-blower Chelsea Manning was appropriate, even though she was kept in solitary confinement, and severely mistreated for nine months before any charges were even brought against her.   He has ordered the assassination of Americans and their children without even the pretext of due process (his due process is that he "thinks" about it.)   

He meets every Tuesday morning with a secret group that decides whom to assassinate that week.

 But he talks softly.  Like Gusavo Fring, the drug dealer and ruthless mobster does in the TV miniseries, Breaking Bad.   But like Gustavo, he is a wolf in sheep's clothing.

 Wolves in sheep's clothing need secrecy.  Secrecy is needed to make sure they are not exposed for what they are.  That's where the Boy comes in.  The Boy's name is Edward Snowden, and he spoiled everything.

 THE BOY: Snowden, a young idealist (most idealists are young - - -- like Chelsea Manning or Julian Assange) knew that it was unconstitutional for the National Security Agency to spy on Americans without obtaining a warrant.   He said it was his patriotic duty to call out the Wolf on this, and so he did.

When the Wolf was outed, he howled.

He howled so loud that the howl was heard around the world.  The Germans and Spanish and Italians and French and even the English and others found out that they too were being spied on.  "We thought we were friends!" they cried.   They themselves began to howl at Obama, whom they suddenly saw as a wolf who could not be trusted.

THE WOLF WHO CRIED BOY:  Obama used all his power to apprehend the Boy who outed him.   He arranged for the plane of Evo Morales, the President of Boliva, to be brought down.  He said it was helping the Boy to escape.  The plane was searched, no Boy.   Morales called what happened to him a disgrace; an "act of air piracy."

Embarrassing to say the least!  

He is paying billions of taxpayer dollars to more than a million private-contractor spies -- you'd think he would have been more careful.  

He howled some more.
