Talk about the pot calling the kettle black.
Bill Ayers, the Weather Underground co-founder who once knew Barack Obama in Chicago, now thinks the president should be put on trial for war crimes.
Ayers made the comments during an interview with Real Clear Politics. The former leader of a domestic terror group ripped the sitting president over his continuation of the U.S. drone program.
Asked if Obama should go on trial for war crimes, he said: "Absolutely, every president in this century should be put on trial" at The Hague.
"Every one of them goes into office, an office dropping with blood and then adds to it," he said. "And yes, I think that these are war crimes. I think they're acts of terror."
Obama, during a speech last month on counterterrorism policy, defended his administration's practice of taking out terror operatives overseas with drone strikes. He also announced new checks on the program.
Obama has tried to distance himself from Ayers, who previously lived in the same neighborhood as Obama and once served on a charitable board with him.
In 1969 Ayers co-founded the Weather Underground, a self-described communist revolutionary group that conducted a campaign of bombing public buildings (including police stations, the U.S. Capitol Building, and the Pentagon) during the 1960s and 1970s in response to U.S. involvement in the Vietnam War.
A New York Times story on Ayers, which ironically ran on the morning of Sept. 11, 2001, found the 1960s radical to show no remorse for his involvement in domestic terrorism. ''I don't regret setting bombs,'' Bill Ayers said. ''I feel we didn't do enough.''
