Lupe Fiasco Speaks On Barack Obama Ordering Drone Attacks
In a recent interview with radio station Power 99, Lupe Fiasco spoke about the government, disagreeing with decisions made by President Barack Obama. The lyricist has not shied away from sharing his opinion in the past, previously telling CBS: "In my fight against terrorism, to me, the biggest terrorist is Obama in the United States of America…"
He continued, saying: "The root cause of the terrorism is the stuff that you as a government allow to happen and the foreign policies that we have in place in different countries that inspire people to become terrorists."
When speaking on radio recently, Lupe discussed Obama ordering drone attacks. The computer-controlled air vehicle causes explosions in places that are deemed dangerous. He said: "Ordering drone attacks that go and kill mothers, innocent bystanders, children... You’re responsible for that, too.”
The show’s host responded by saying that any collateral damage was not intentional, to which Lupe replied: "Drug dealers can say the same thing. I didn’t mean to kill all the people in the restaurant. I was just trying to get that one dude who killed my cousin. Just so happened that little girl was there. Same thing.”
