"...Let's hope that Obama breaks all his election promises..., because all his election promises, in terms of foreign policy, are a continuation of business as usual. ...There was almost nothing between McCain and Obama in foreign policy. Indeed, Obama went further: he even declared Jerusalem the capital of Israel; he threatened Latin America; he, at times, seemed to be going further than Bush."
Democracy Now interviews John Pilger on Obama's recent victory in the 2008 presidential election and its foreign policy implications. John Pilger is an Australian investigative journalist, bestselling author, and documentary filmmaker. His latest book is "Freedom Next Time: Resisting the Empire", and his most recent film is called "The War on Democracy".
