Ajamu Baraka on Foreign Policy
He's served on boards of several human rights organizations, including Amnesty International (USA) and the National Center for Human Rights Education. He's also served on boards of the Center for Constitutional Rights; Africa Action; Latin American Caribbean Community Center; Diaspora Afrique and the Mississippi Workers' Center for Human Rights.
Stein described Baraka as "a powerful, eloquent spokesperson for the transformative, radical agenda whose time has come--an agenda of economic, social, racial, gender, climate, indigenous and immigrant justice. Ajamu's life's work has embodied the immortal words of Dr. Martin Luther King: Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere."
It is that story which informs the thinking of Pres. Obama when he declares that the US 'has been the anchor of global security' i.e. the provider of an indispensable safety net without which transcontinental chaos would have ensued. In his version of exceptionalism, the brutal war in Vietnam was a war to free the Vietnamese people from communism, and the millions of people who died in Iraq were worth the price to get rid of Saddam Hussein.
