The Obama Syndrome

Tariq Ali's new book is a merciless dissection of Obama’s overseas escalation and domestic retreat

Issue No. 2228

This is a merciless dissection of Obama’s overseas escalation and domestic retreat.

Tariq Ali argues that little has changed since Bush left the White House.

The Wall Street banks were bailed out and the plans for reforming the healthcare system lie wrecked on the Senate floor.

The “war on terror”—and torture—continue, with Iraq occupied indefinitely, Israel permanently favoured, more troops being sent to Afghanistan and more drone attacks in Pakistan than under Bush.
