WikiLeaks: Obama Lied About the US-Mexican Drug War

Statuesque Obama

Sarah Palin may want to see Julian Assange assassinated, but if anything, he should awarded the Times Man of the Year Award. WikiLeaks latest releases exposes the dirty laundry of the US Government and while Hillary Clinton who was recently exposed as a criminal running the State Department as if it were a wing of the CIA, claims that WikiLeaks is an attack on America’s foreign policy interests. What WikiLeaks is doing in reality is attacking the credibility of the government of the United States.

Take the United States Drug war for an example. President Obama claimed in September of 2010 that the level of violence seen in Mexico attributed to that country’s U.S. backed war against drug cartels did not resemble the violence seen in Columbia during the Reagan Administration where scores of citizens and politicians were killed because of U.S. foreign policy interest. Obama was seeking to ease concerns over Hillary Clinton’s statement to a Washington think-tank that Mexico is "looking more and more like Colombia looked 20 years ago, where the narco-traffickers control certain parts of the country,"

Obama told a Spanish language newspaper that "Mexico is vast and progressive democracy, with a growing economy, and as a result you cannot compare what is happening in Mexico with what happened in Colombia 20 years ago”. However, according to Mexican officials, their government was losing control of parts of its national territory and time was "running out" to rein in drug violence.
