Trafficking Rhetoric

As the world’s leading arms trafficking nation, the U.S. controls three-quarters of the international weapons trade. Selling arms is at the top of the list of priorities of every top-level official working on foreign policy throughout the U.S. Government.

As William Hartung reports on Obama’s unrestrained promotion of U.S. arms exports, “Ironically, the administrations new rhetoric of restraint has been enunciated in parallel with an effort to loosen arms export controls, an initiative that could make it easier for U.S. weapons to fall into the hands of terrorists and human rights abusers.”

All fraud, all the time. That’s Obama.
