Putin is worse than a liar. If you look into his background you find that his grandfather was the chef in the Lenin household. After Lenin died his grandfather became Stalin’s chef. (Apparently Stalin’s reputation for cruelty gained him many enemies, and Stalin needed to ensure what he ate wasn’t poisoned.)
This all wends its way into the rich and powerful upper elite in this country, who ran the banks, the largest corporations and all of the news media. These people funded the Bolshevik Revolution using the “humanitarian” mission to Russia as cover, later to result in the Soviet Union with Vladimir Putin as the head of the Secret Police, KGB, where he helped in the planning of the East German Secret Police or Stasi. Obama must know this and all of his bluster is just to deflect criticism if he did not.
