US citizens not exempt from extra judiciary drone strikes under Obama.
How has Obama been “off the hook” on this is beyond me. Two breathtaking hypocrites stand out.
1) WAPO agreed NOT to reveal the existence of a secret drone site in Saudi Arabia so as not to compromise Obama “kill-drone” operations against Yemeni targets. Other majors newspapers have also supposedly been party to this. It is disturbing that the MSM is acting like a lapdog to this President.
Yet, the same liberal media has been whipping itself into a frenzy since 9/11 over the so-called “violations of constitutional rights” of alien (ie foreign/non-American) terrorist suspects operating outside of the U.S.A, therefore not covered under U.S Law nor operating under long accepted definitions of the Geneva Convention.
1) America does not “torture” anyone – they use Enhanced Interrogation Techniques (EIT). In the SLATE article it is mentioned that all EIT’s have been tested on “tens of thousands of American soldiers” – presumably in-order to prepare them for potential enemy action.
3) Further coordinated international Legal propaganda by legions of left-wing- lawyers and “Human Rights” groups appear to have created a media “echo-chamber” effect that suggest a MASSIVE illegal CIA operation. This is patently ridiculous. At most, no more than 100 enemy combatants were detained at so-called “dark” sites.
