Is Putin into conspiracy theories or does the man actually know something? Anyway, in an interview with French television, Le Figaro, Russian president Vladimir Putin, claims that all US presidents are controlled like puppets, by men in dark suits.

Putin clarifies his views, and says that the “Presidents come and go, but the politics remain the same”.

He takes Barack Obama as an example, on how he promised to close down the Guantanamo bay detention camp while he was the president for eight years, but didn’t.

Putin is convinced, that Obama deep done inside wanted to close Guantanamo, but couldn’t, because of his lack of influence and subordination to the security service and the bureaucracy in the U.S that is more or less status quo, and does not allow any meaningful changes in policy direction, according to Putin.

“A certain person may be elected by the public on the basis of his merit and ideals – but rarely is this person able to formulate policy,” said Vladimir Putin.
