Author Noam Chomsky blasted the Obama administration in an interview on Tuesday, charging that President Obama “is running the biggest terrorist operation that exists, maybe in history.”

“The Obama administration is dedicated to increasing terrorism,” Mr. Chomsky, an MIT professor, told GRITtv host Laura Flanders. “In fact, it’s doing it all over the world. Obama, first of all, is running the biggest terrorist operation that exists, maybe in history. The drone assassination campaigns, which are just part of it. … All of these operations, they are terror operations.”

“Villages, regions, countries are terrorized by these operations. … People hate the country that’s just terrorizing them, that’s not a surprise,” Mr. Chomsky added. “Just consider the way we react to acts of terror. That’s the way other people react to acts of terror.”

He went on to say that the White House risked a nuclear war to kill Osama bin Laden by sending special forces troops into a sovereign nation, Raw Story reported.

Mr. Chomsky was most recently awarded the Sydney Peace Prize in 2011, which cited his “unfailing courage, critical analysis of power and promotion of human rights.”
