4 Most Noteworthy Moments from Obama’s Interview with Vice News

5:37 pm, March 16th, 2015

On Monday afternoon (at 4:20 p.m., of course) Vice News released their CEO Shane Smith‘s full interview with President Barack Obama. …

Obama: Some in Congress Are ‘Shills’ for Oil Companies

Asked by Smith why it’s so difficult to convince Americans to take stronger action on anthropogenic climate change, the president didn’t mince words, using colorful language to describe certain (unnamed) lawmakers who he believes are too cozy with fossil fuel companies:

If you poll folks, they’re concerned about climate change, but they’re even more concerned about gas prices. You can’t fault somebody for being concerned about paying the bills or being able to fill up your tank to get to your job. In some cases, you have elected officials who are shills for the oil companies or the fossil fuel industry and there’s a lot of money involved.

He also went after Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-OK), who infamously threw a snowball on the Senate floor to dismiss anthropogenic global warming. Inhofe is now chairman of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee; a fact which prompted Obama pointedly described as “disturbing.”

Obama ‘Embarrassed’ for GOP Senators Who Signed Iran Letter

Regarding the 47 Republican Senators who signed a letter to Iran criticizing the president’s nuclear deal proposal, Obama told Smith: “I’m embarrassed for them.” He continued:

For them to address a letter to the Ayatollah — who they claim is our mortal enemy, and their basic argument to them is ‘Don’t deal with our president because you can’t trust him to follow through on an agreement’ — that’s close to unprecedented.

Rise of ISIS Proves U.S. Should ‘Aim Before We Shoot’

“ISIL is a direct outgrowth of al Qaeda in Iraq, that grew out of our invasion, which is an example of unintended consequences,” Obama told Smith when asked about the rise of the barbaric forces abroad. “We should generally aim before we shoot,” he added on American foreign policy.

Unintended consequence or intended consequence: the peace movement warned before the start of the Iraq war that Bush’s and Blair’s invasion plans would open a Pandora’s box of terrorism.

So, after his Vice President Biden told some truths about NATO member Turkey’s, and other allies of the US’ links to ISIS, President Obama now admits the role of the United States government itself.

However, Vice President Biden soon apologized for his honesty about the Turkish government. We should hope Obama will not do likewise.

After a German President was sacked for honesty about the economic aims of the Afghan war, we should also hope that Obama will not be sacked for honesty about George W Bush, Dick Cheney and Tony Blair.

The west turned a blind eye to the possible use of chemical weapons by militant Islamists allied against the Assad regime in Syria. Now that Islamic State almost certainly possesses them, the chickens are coming home to roost: here.

Isis in Afghanistan is a disaster waiting to happen. Its black flag has replaced the white ones of the Talibs in a swathe of areas including in Helmand: here.
