“Kuzmarov’s book is serious and fair and should prompt historians — and the rest of us — to reevaluate Obama’s legacy.” BRIAN D’HAESELEER, Washington Post

“In ways no one else has done, Kuzmarov punctures Obama’s phony liberal and humanitarian veneer and skillfully deconstructs the carefully crafted Obama creation myth…”  PETER KUZNICK, co-author with Oliver Stone of The Untold History of the United States
“Barack Obama seemed skeptical of militarism, but then bombed Libya & Syria, sent more troops to Iraq and Afghanistan & escalated Cold War with Russia. Why and how? Read Obama’s Unending Wars: Fronting the Foreign Policy of the Permanent Warfare State.”  STEPHEN KINZER

“Kuzmarov shows how many white progressives, who, in their anxiety to reject any racist appearance, embraced this warmongering president. Obama also convinced most African-Americans to give him leeway to do them justice, which he never did. ”  RON RIDENOUR, Black Agenda Report
