Web Desk(December 4, 2017): An American academic, political commentator and scholar says former US President Barack Obama is “either wildly detached from reality or lying through his teeth,” while talking about Osama bin Laden and terrorism.
Dr Kevin Barrett made these remarks in an interview while commenting on a speech made by Obama at the Leadership Summit — an annual meeting of business tycoons, world leaders and Nobel laureates in India.
Speaking at the event, the former US president said Pakistan did not know the whereabouts of al-Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden, and that Washington does not distinguish between terrorist groups which target India and those that target the United States.“And Obama, of course, is here with people from India who view the liberation struggle in Kashmir as terrorism, and it is not.
The Kashmiri liberation forces are primarily non-violent just like in Palestine, but to the extent that they do target India, they target Indian soldiers in Kashmir, and that is their right under international law,” he stated.
“The Indian government, especially the extremist element, has partnered with the elements of the US and Israeli Deep State in trying to smear the Kashmiri liberation struggle by creating false flag terrorism in India in which civilians are slaughtered,” he noted.
