Huffington Post A few weeks ago, the political right criticized
President Barack Obama for having Common, a Chicago-native rapper, to the White House for a poetry reading.
Lupe Fiasco: "I don't want you to bomb some village in the middle of nowhere.
the situation's turned on its head, as a Chicago rapper is attacking
the President for being too far right in his foreign policy.
"In my fight against terrorism, to me, the biggest terrorist is Obama, and the United States of America,"
Lupe told host Shira Lazar. He went on to explain the comment:
"I'm trying to fight the terrorism that's actually causing the other
forms of terrorism. You know, the root cause of terrorism is the stuff
that the U.S. government allows to happen, and the foreign policies
that we have in place in different countries that inspire people to
become terrorists. And it's easy for us because it's just some oil."
