Bill Ayers: All U.S. Presidents in This Century, Including Obama, Should Be Tried for War Crimes

Remember Bill Ayers, the guy Sarah Palin accused then-candidate Barack Obama of “palling around” around? Um, guess what? Bill Ayers now says President Obama should be tried for war crimes. So much for that so-called friendship.

Sitting down for an episode of RealClearPolitics’ “Morning Commute,” Ayers told host Charlie Stone that, on policy, Obama receives a “failing grade” along with the “F-minuses” he’s given previous presidents like George W. Bush and Richard Nixon.

“I don’t think he’s let anybody down,” Ayers added, pointing to how during the 2008 presidential campaign then-Senator Obama consistently declared himself to be a “middle-of-the-road, pragmatic politician.” Ayers also described his favorable opinion of Obama’s personality and the fact that he is “interested” and spends a lot of time reading.

Stone pointed out that Ayers views presidents like Lyndon B. Johnson, Nixon, and Bush “with disdain” for their “terrorist” actions, and then asked whether Obama is on that same level for his executive use of drone strikes abroad.

“Of course,” Ayers replied.

“Do you think Barack Obama should be put on trial for war crimes?” Stone asked.

“Absolutely,” the activist answered. “Every president in this century should be on trial for war crimes. Every one of them goes into an office dripping with blood.”
