Letter: Moral question

The other day I noticed a report that President Barack Obama had claimed the moral leadership of the world for the United States and the United Kingdom.

This seems a bit rich coming from the president of a country that has propped up dictators worldwide for decades; a country which has invaded other countries and sent in a goon squad to a sovereign state to seize, or murder someone, and it seems is quite prepared to do the same again

This is a country which has imprisoned people without trial for years, this is a country which uses torture and when that torture becomes embarrassing arranges what are euphemistically called rendition flights.

To move on to the US's little chum, Britain has assisted in the American neo-colonial invasions, it has connived in the rendition flights and has been known worldwide as Perfidious Albion.

Moral leadership? What a hoot.
