At a campaign stop in Carson, Calif., Governor Sarah Palin lashed out at Senator Barack Obama's ties to controversial figure Bill Ayers, one of the founders of the group the Weather Underground.
June 18, 2013:
Bill Ayers believes President Obama should be put on trial for war crimes at The Hague, the Weather Underground co-founder told Real Clear Politics in an interview posted Tuesday.
Ayers told the website he "absolutely" believed the president was engaged in terrorism for his use of drone strikes in fighting the war on terror.
"Absolutely. Every president in this century should be put on trial, every one of them," Ayers said. "For war crimes. Absolutely. Every one of them goes into office, an office dripping with blood, and adds to it. And yes, I think these are war crimes. They are acts of terror."
Ayers also said he would give the president a "failing" grade, while admitting that he liked him personally more than other recent presidents.
Oh well then, as long as he still likes him.
