Former Weather Underground member and a University of Illinois at Chicago professor Bill Ayers, who received much attention during the 2008 Presidential election for his relationship with Barack Obama, said in a recent interview that the President should be tried for war crimes.
While Ayers criticized the President’s foreign policy and use of drone strikes, he praised Obama’s personal style. Ayers also softened his criticisms against Obama by saying that all modern U.S. Presidents are guilty of war crimes.
“Every President in this century should be put on trial,” Ayers said. “Every one of them goes into an office dripping with blood and then adds to it. And, yes, I think that these are war crimes. I think that they’re acts of terror.”
