Global Oppression, Suffering and Murder - Is the following the REAL story Barack Obama wants to tell?
On July 12th President Obama told CBS News that a president’s job is to “tell the story” behind their policies, and that he regrets not telling the “story” of his policies

native Kenyans much.
Not only did the British rule Kenya, but nearly the entire continent of
Africa was under European domination by the time of “The War to End All
Wars.” Needless to say, most Africans, like anyone would, found their
colonization a bit…uhh…“agitating.’’ Further stoking their agitation
was the rise of.....
