Cornel West Calls Obama A War Criminal

Newsbusters has the audio. Here's Cornel West:
No, but I think, my dear brother, the chickens are coming home to roost. We've been talking about this for a good while, the immorality of drones, dropping bombs on innocent people, it's been over 200 children so far. These are war crimes. I think we have to be very honest, let us not be deceived -- Nixon, Bush, Obama, they're war criminals. They have killed innocent people in the name of the struggle for freedom, but they're suspending the law, very much like Wall Street criminals. The law is suspended for them, but the law applies for the rest of us. If you and I, brother Tavis, if we kill an innocent person, we're going to jail.
Great moments of the Democratic socialist movement in America.
