The nation's most prominent intellectual, who has been very outspoken about President Obama's policies for the poor, has gone even further on the Tavis Smiley Show.
Professor Cornel West likened the President of the United States to a "war criminal". West stated, " We've been talking about this for a good while, the immorality of drones, dropping bombs on innocent people.
It's been over 200 children so far. These are war crimes."
West also threw both the Nixon and Bush Administrations in the mix as well saying, "Let us not be deceived — Nixon, Bush, Obama, they're war criminals," adding that "They have killed innocent people in the name of the struggle for freedom, but they're suspending the law, very much like Wall Street criminals.
The law is suspended for them, but the law applies for the rest of us."
