Continuity, Thy Name is Obama - Part 5

The Bush administration refused to sign an international treaty about land mines. According to the report on Reuters I link to below this decision by the Bush administration was a change in U.S. policy (presumably from Clinton?) and Bush and his bunch said they would never join.

Now comes the Obama administration ... acknowledging that they will NOT "change" the Bush-era policy.

Big shock.

CLICK to go to that Reuters report if you like.

By the way, I don't know enough about the land mine treaty to have an opinion on whether the U.S. government should or should not sign it. I'm not expressing an opinion on that. This is just another installment in my collection or reports noting things that Obama is not doing differently from Bush. I'd note that a lot of the continuity is to do with killing. The war industry are well-connected politically. Big shock.
