    quote: The New York Times is reporting President Obama personally oversees a "kill list" containing the names and photos of individuals targeted for assassination in the secret U.S. drone war. According to the Times, Obama signs off on every targeted killing in Yemen and Somalia and the more complex or risky strikes in Pakistan. National Security Adviser Thomas Donilon said, "He is determined that he will make these decisions about how far and wide these operations will go." Obama is also said to personally approve every addition to the expanding "kill list." Individuals on the list include U.S. citizens, as well teenage girls as young as 17 years old. The Times quotes former White House Chief of Staff William Daley about Obama’s decision to assassinate Anwar al-Awlaki, a U.S. citizen, in Yemen. According to Daley, Obama called the decision to strike the U.S.-born cleric "an easy one." Since April, the United States has carried out at least 14 drone strikes in Yemen and six in Pakistan. Over the weekend, a U.S. drone strike in Yemen killed at least five people.

    They crack me up, the media and government officials always speak in a way that suggests members of government have morals, and concerns over innocent life.

    What really upsets me is that we have gotten so comfortable with declaring wars and indiscriminately killing women and children anywhere that we choose to. We were upset with Bush jr. but we make not hardly a peep when Obama makes Bush look like a whimp when it comes to undeclaired murder in foreign nations. This will upset you more when you find out that the president does not need congress anymore to sign off on wars and killings. Listen and see where he goes to get his marching orders from. Hint, it is not the Constitution Of The United Snakes Of America anymore. Now you can see why the government is starting to make laws and turn on the USA Citizens. The other shoe is falling upon our heads next. Peace

    Yep, so when it's time to reap what was sowed, there shouldn't be any crying from these people.

    The main reason is favoritism/partiality.

    From President, to Dictator; from Constitution and 3 branches of government, to Dictatorship ... and without the people of the nation even realizing it!

    At this very moment, Obama can do, and has done, whatever his controllers want him to do without the approval or disapproval of others. Crazy!







    *Flashback: Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize. All this war, violence and killing ....

    Obama is 0ne of the most lethal and powerful baby-faced president ever. Violence by itself is useless but when it's tempered with intelligence it sure builds empires.

    And don't forget charming and smooth-talking.
    He doesn't have a problem with lying either. At least with Bush, most of the time you could tell when he was lying.

    I think its a shame because Obama initially campaigned against these types of Presidential powers. Plus, alotta the dudes on the kill list do not merit being killed. Like Anwar Al-Aliki's son. We have no business putting to do death children...
