Nelson Mandela: Obama, Clinton, Cameron, Blair – Tributes of Shameful Hypocrisy | Palestine Chronicle

Mandela, said the Presidential High Executioner, had: “… bent the arc of the moral universe toward justice.”Mandela, after nearly thirty years in jail 1964-1990 forgave his jailors and those who would have preferred to see him hung. Obama committed to closing Guantanamo, an election pledge, the prisoners still self-starve in desperation as their lives rot away, without hope.The decimation of Libya had no congressional approval. Yemen, Somalia, Pakistan and Afghanistan’s dismembered Drone victims are a Presidential roll call of shame and horror and the Nobel Peace Laureate’s trigger finger still hovers over Syria and Iran, for all the talk of otherwise. When his troops finally limped out of Iraq, he left the biggest Embassy in the world and a proxy armed force, with no chance of them leaving being on even the most distant horizon.Clearly learning, justice and being “guided by love” is proving bit of an uphill struggle. Ironically, Obama was born in 1964, the year Mandela was sentenced to jail and his “long walk to freedom.”Bill Clinton, who illegally, with the UK ordered the near continual bombing of Iraq throughout his Presidency 1993-2001 and the siege conditions of the embargo, with an average of six thousand a month dying of “embargo related causes”, paid tribute to Mandela as: “a champion for human dignity and freedom, for peace and reconciliation … a man of uncommon grace and compassion, for whom abandoning bitterness and embracing adversaries was … a way of life. All of us are living in a better world because of the life that Madiba lived.” Tell that to America’s victims.
