Doesn’t look like West will be getting his own MSNBC show any time soon (those are reserved for boot-lickers only).
(HuffPo) — On Wednesday The Huffington Post again visited New York’s Loews Regency Hotel, the self-proclaimed home of the “Power Breakfast.”
During this trip, we caught up with Cornel West, the famed civil rights activist and scholar, who shared his thoughts on the 2012 presidential election and recent U.S. foreign policy. [...]
The Princeton University professor was equally harsh in his critique of U.S. foreign policy. Regarding the White House’s overseas drone campaign, West said, “The Obama administration is involved in some very ugly killing of innocent people.”
“The drones with the bombs killing innocent civilians needs to be taken very very seriously,” West said. “You can’t hide and conceal that. So when I think of foreign policy, I connect the drones on the one hand to the corruption and incompetence and inefficiency of the Karzai regime.
“So I have a very very deep disagreement with the kind of U.S. foreign policy at the moment that Barack Obama is promoting,” West added.
