History is made today, which some people seem to forget.
“Without getting into history” is the phrase that U.S. State Department spokesperson Jen Psaki uses when questioned about her statement that the U.S. has a long standing policy of not supporting unconstitutional, undemocratic and violent changes of government in Latin America. Such a “long standing policy” overlooks U.S. involvement in coups in Brazil, Chile, Venezuela, Guatemala and Haiti. The U.S. has a long history of involvement in not only Latin American coups but also in others the world over, most recently in Ukraine. “Without getting into history” is a phrase that is uttered by those who have no desire to admit to past actions, or a phase uttered by hypocrites who see nothing wrong with intervening in the internal politics of other countries, while at the same time professing a citizen’s right to self determination.
