Former Weather Underground leader now says his Chicago buddy, President Obama should be tried for “war crimes.”
Ayers has been a long-time Obama friend and advocate. Ayers hosted the kick- off event for Obama’s political career in Chicago, helped fund the Obama campaigns, was probably the ghost writer for Obama’s autobiography and it has also been reported that Ayers’ parents funded Obama’s early schooling.
Of course Ayers and his despicable criminal wife Bernadine Dohrn were involved in bombing the Pentagon and U.S. Capitol building in the early 1970s and the murder of a police officer who was killed in one of the Weather Underground’s bombing sprees.
Appearing with Charlie Stone in a Real Clear Politics' "Morning Commute," interview, Ayers said every president enters "an office dripping with blood and then adds to it."
Ayers had been asked by co-host Charlie Stone if Obama, as the sole authority for Drone use, was engaged in terrorist activity.
"Absolutely," Ayers answered.
"Do you think Barack Obama should be put on trial for war crimes?" Stone asked.
"Absolutely," Ayers responded. "Every president in this century should be put on trial" for war crimes in The Hague.
"Yes, I think these are war crimes," Ayers said. "I think they're acts of terror I don't at all feel like Obama's let anybody down," Ayers said, explaining that throughout the 2008 campaign Obama consistently said "I am a middle-of-the-road, pragmatic politician."
Ayers of course watered down his radical criticism and mentioned that he likes Obama: "He's a curious person. One of the things I like about him is he's curious. He wants to know things. He asks questions. He's not just charming, he's also interested. He reads. … And I liked him personally. I mean, he's a really good guy."
