Obama’s Turning Point

by Philip Giraldi, September 10, 2009

"......So Obama will soon have the opportunity to make a clear break with the policies of the Bush White House. But will he? He has not pulled the plug on Iraq in spite of his pre-election promises and all signs indicate that he is a consensus politician who is not disposed to take risks. Nevertheless, the choice will be his in Afghanistan, with Iran, and in the Israel-Palestine conflict. He can walk away from an existing war and from starting a new one and he could also take the first step to disengage the United States from Israeli foreign policy and partisan involvement in the Middle East. It will take both nerve and commitment as well as an understanding that current policies are just not sustainable and do not work in America’s interest. If Obama does not opt for real change and moves to the dark side, we citizens who had hoped for better can have absolutely no positive expectations for the next three years."
