The Obama administration has in turn been secretive about its use of targeted drone strikes, boasted about the program's success, and fended off critics who say the strikes are killing and injuring too many civilians. A New York Times story published Tuesday has the administration's human rights critics buzzing again. A key revelation comes near the end of the article, written by Jo Becker and Scott Shane, under the heading, "'They Must All Be Militants.'"

Obama, Becker and Shane write, was angry when informed that the first drone strike after he took office had killed innocent Pakistanis. But one of the measures the administration embraced to prevent future innocent casualties was to embrace a method of counting combatants that would rope in more innocents.

That go for domestic targets over there too..?

The message from the Obama/Soetero/Bounel(whoever that guy really is)-
administration is clear, any case:

- Anyone is subject to execution without as much as a hint nor breath of
a fair trial.

No they aren't. We are. We are the ones letting them do what they want even though they are doing it to us.

I am not your rolling wheels, I am the highway
I am not your carpet ride I am the sky
I am not your blowing wind, I am the lightning
I am not your autumn moon, I am the night

Hej Shadow! hug.gif

Check this out... https://wwws.whitehouse.gov/petitions#!/...t/HwqFwRtG

Quote:"An 11-year-old girl from upstate New York — over 1,000 Americans have already added their name to a petition posted on the Internet this week. Their plea may sound silly at first glance, but it’s authors appear to be anything other than serious about it: after a Tuesday morning article in the New York Times revealed US President Barack Obama’s authority to add and remove names from a roster of alleged enemies of the state to be executed without due process, 1,679 Americans have already asked that they be placed on a “do not kill” list."

Some piss poor times were living in when Americans are signing a petition in order to avoid being killed by their own government. sad2.gif Shameful.
