The Flint water crisis is a shadow on Obama’s legacy

4536In the final months of the Obama administration, the president’s legacy is the subject of much speculation. The president admitted last week that the lack of planning for post-Libya intervention was the administration’s biggest mistake. While historians will debate this question, I beg to disagree. I believe history will judge that the “biggest mistake” of the Obama presidency was the lack of leadership in the poisoning of Flint, Michigan.

No question, the poisoning rises to the level of criminal negligence involving gross mismanagement and cover-ups. Hundreds of young people will, as a result, never achieve their intellectual promise. How different the reaction of the Obama administration would have been if Isis had claimed responsibility for poisoning Flint.  Source
